When asked to pick my favorite item from the Shed I immediately knew that I would choose the Blinky POV kit. Not only is this kit fun to make, but it is also really fun once it’s been made. MakerShed_Holiday_Hdr-Logo_bur02

This simple soldering kit uses a row of LEDs to create a POV (persistence of vision) display that creates the illusion of text or pictures. This was the first soldering kit that I put together, so I know from experience that its great for beginners. Whether you’re buying it as a gift or keeping it for yourself this is a great buy. Check it out for yourself here.
