In the Maker Shed: Aurorarium

Later this week I will have a detailed build and video of the Aurorarium kit from the Maker Shed. It looks like a cool kit that I should be able to hack or modify to make it even more unique. The Aurorarium is another kit made by Gakken, so my expectations are high.

Create your own aurora-like effects with this awesome device. Leave the cone on and enjoy the soft changing lights, or fill the tray with water and see the amazing aurora lights on your wall or ceiling. Instructions are in Japanese but features highly detailed assembly pictures, sorry no English translation at this time.


Don’t worry that the Aurorarium doesn’t include English instructions. I looked over the Japanese version and this kit is really easy to build. The pictures, along with my build instructions, are all you will ever need.

    The makershed hyperlinks have a trailing “
