New in the Maker Shed: Supercap Racers!

New in the Maker Shed: Supercap Racers!

Looking for a last minute stocking stuffer? The Supercap Racer, designed by George Albercook, is the latest addition to the Maker Shed’s popular Mintronics line of DIY kits. Simply solder the kit together, add 4 AAA batteries, and you’re ready to race! It takes only seconds to charge the supercapacitor, and when fully charged, it will power the racer across the floor or table at lightning speed! Supercap Racers are fun for the whole family and a great way to learn how to solder. Watch out, they’re addictive! (Note: Requires 4 AAA batteries and basic soldering)

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I'm a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
