Special Maker Faire version! Meet the PumLantern kit - a solar-charged, night-time activated light-pulsing lantern! This new pummer features even brighter LEDs than the old HexPummer, as well as stylized lantern construction.

This kit charges all day from the SCC3733 solar cell, and pumms the four ultra-mega-super-bright LEDs to cast artistic silhouettes against the walls of the lantern. The LEDs themselves are a random grab of white, blue, red, orange and green. Like the HexPummer, this is a build-it-yourself kit. Basic electronics assembly is needed for the Pummer circuit, and the shell slides/snaps together with little effort. Everything is included to build this kit! Colors vary. Soldering required.

Note that this video shows off the old HexPummer circuitry instead of the new PumLantern. They’re both pretty similar, except the new design is much brighter!

Maker Shed

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for ‘projects in a box,’ otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
