We are about to wrap up our first dog days of summer deal in the Maker Shed. I really like the Brain Machine kit and at 30% off it’s a great deal! Next week we will feature a new “dog days” kit, and a new bundle for our series of MAKEcation summer challenges!

Please note: My dog is a highly trained electrical engineer, stunt-dog, and chemist. Please don’t use the Brain Machine on your average k-9. Thanks!

The Brain machine in the picture above is a heavily modified version, with some extra components. You can learn how to hack your Brain Machine here.

    I recently showed Mitch’s Brain Machine to some friends. I saw where you had it on sale for $24.95. The imediately made a special trip to buy one based on that price. By the time we tacked on shipping, etc., it was $50. The MakerShed did not reflect what was on the web page. It was $10 higher pushing it to almost $50 which was out of their budget. This was very embarassing to me.

      Yes, sorry the sale is over. The sale was for 1 week and started July 18th (see post date). Even without the sale, you can ship it USPS Priority ($5.95) and be well under $50. (if you are in the US).
