Lots of new stuff in the Maker store (and a special congrats to Rob!) – Here’s a fun little open source soldering kit that provides an introduction to the capabilities of microcontrollers. The readerboard spells out preprogrammed messages such as “MAKE” one letter at a time on its alphanumeric LED display.

The LED Micro-Readerboard, designed by Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories, is a fun little open source soldering kit that provides an introduction to the capabilities of microcontrollers. The readerboard spells out preprogrammed messages such as “MAKE,” or “HELLO WORLD,” one letter at a time on its alphanumeric LED display. Fifteen phrases are included and holiday messages can be optional enabled as well– for use as a holiday ornament. The kit comes complete with easy, comic book style instructions and a pre- programmed microcontroller. No programming is needed, but source code is available in case you want to hack it.
