Find all your DIY electronics in the MakerShed. 3D Printing, Kits, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Books & more!

The Pendulum Challenge Kit from the Maker Shed includes everything you need to build the project featured in MAKE, Volume 26. At the heart of the system is a pre-programmed PIC micro controller that runs the internal state machine which processes the game’s switch inputs and drives the LED outputs. This kit is easy to solder together, and is perfect for a beginner electronics enthusiast.

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 .

    I might buy this, if I knew what it did. There is no information about it in the store. Do I have to buy the magazine to understand why I would want to buy this?

      It’s quite simple…
      Look at the pattern of lights. Obviously it’s a challenge to try and get the ‘pendulum’ to stop on the green light…

        No, its not obvious, though I believe you that thats what it does. Its just a suggestion to a seller to explain what a product does.
