See that guy on the right there? That’s Dale Wheat! He’s the creator of the Wee Blinky, tinyCylon, and Lux Spectralis kits. He’s one heck of a nice guy, and he’s going to be at Maker Faire next weekend teaching people to solder. Come on over to the Maker Shed workshop area to find out how you can learn to solder with Dale!

The Lux Spectralis from the Maker Shed is a completely open source deluxe LED blinky. The kit features over 30 different high intensity color modes. These modes range from a simple night-light that shuts off after 5 minutes, strobes, and color washes. Click on the ‘More Details‘ tab in the Maker Shed for a complete list of functions.
