I ordered three components while “window shopping” at Amazon. A couple of the components I will use for Arduino and Raspberry Pi projects I have in mind and another I bought just to see how the thing worked.
You will find Amazon and manufacturer links (at least the ones I could locate) should you want to purchase and use these components in your own projects.
Manufacturer Description: TCS3200 Color Sensor is a complete color detector, including a TAOS TCS3200 RGB sensor chip and 4 white LEDs. The TCS3200 can detect and measure a nearly limitless range of visible colors. Applications include test strip reading, sorting by color, ambient light sensing and calibration, and color matching, to name just a few.

Manufacturer Description: Simple infrared motion sensor. Power the device and wait 1–2 seconds. the sensor will capture a snapshot of the surroundings. If changes within the environment, the ‘alarm’ pin will register low.

Manufacturer Description: Arduino Sensor Shield V4.0 allows you to connect to various modules like sensors, servos, relays, buttons, potentiometers.just plug & play! Each functional module has buckled port with VCC, GND and Output, which has corresponding port on the Sensor Shield, connected with a plain 2.54mm dual-female cable you may start playing already. Buckled brick cables are like cement for bricks, make the connections easier, secure and more professional looking.
