This guide will show you how to build a survival tin, the Arduino way!

Project Steps

Be cautious when you work with Arduino boards as they are sensitive to static electrical discharge.

Gather parts from shops or out of old junk.

I recommend Maplin and eBay.

Shortening leads.

If your USB cable needs to be shorter, fire up the soldering iron!

Off-board components.

Components such as servos will require tinned wires to connect to the Arduino. Back to the soldering iron!

Pack it all up!

Get your tin and arrange the components in it.

You might want to include a battery snap and battery in the tin.
