Build Your Own Electronic Game Kit
Originally designed for the Maker Faire by Grand Idea Studio, the Build Your Own Electronic Game Kit is a custom-created kit intended to introduce you to the world of electronics and soldering. When successfully assembled, the kit becomes a version of the popular memory game, Simon, with a few optional twists, including no LEDs, no sound, reverse order, and fast play.
The kit includes all the necessary components, including a pre-programmed microprocessor, custom circuit board, and battery. The only other materials you will need are a soldering iron, solder, and wire snips. Assembly instructions, parts list, and game instructions are all conveniently printed on the back of the circuit board.
"My son and I made this kit during the workshop at the Maker Faire. It is straighforward to build,although many of the leads are fairly close, so the soldering can't be too sloppy. For a beginner's kit it is great fun." -Posted by: KFW on June 13, 2006 at 9:23 AM
