Product information "Dark Side of the Moon... Cat - wonderful simple kit to solder and love - Please don't stare!"
Hellooo? Ever heard of privacy?
This wonderful kit is very simple in terms of circuitry, but the result is simply hilarious. A cat in a box and whoever watches is stared at. The eyes glow in wonderful rainbow colours.
If you press the button, two RGB LEDs on the back light up and make the observer smile bashfully. Now all you have to do is pin it to your jacket and you have the perfect conversation starter.
The battery holder, switch and LEDs are hidden on the back. The only unusual thing is that the LED is a THT LED, i.e. a through-hole component. It is soldered to the surface on the back, but lying down. We used this trick to avoid having holes on the front. So the one hole can shine in all the wonderful colours of the rainbow. All soldering tricks are of course described in the instructions.
Note: The gif in the picture gallery is taken with Fast-Forward. Actually the LEDs are much smoother and slower.
The kit comes with all needed parts and PCB:
- Rainbow RGB LEDs
- Battery holder SMD CR2032
