Last week I found great products on eBay that I had no idea that existed. Also, there were some others on my wishlist that I’ve finally ordered.
So, today I’m going to share with you 9 cool products I bought on eBay that you might also like. I’m really looking forward to receive the items so that I can start making new projects and tutorials. Continue reading to see what I’ve bought and get inspired to new project ideas.
Touch Panel for RGB LED Strip
I had no idea this cool product existed. This is a touch panel to control an RGB LED strip. The touch panel has a modern and elegant look and the panel is covered with a glass. This panel is intended to be mounted on the wall as a finished solution.

Wiring the strip to the panel looks really easy and seems to works pretty well for what I’ve read – you can change the strip color and brightness.
Electronic Key Switch
This is an electronic key switch that can be used to turn something on or off only if you have the key.

DIY Signal Generator Kit
This is a DIY kit for a signal generator. This is an inexpensive solution if you can’t afford a high-end signal generator. This kit needs some soldering, but all the components are through-hole, so it is simple to assemble. This signal generator can output sine, triangle and square waves from 1Hz to 1MHz.
