Description: The Dice Kit is a beginner’s soldering kit that comes with everything you need to make your own electronic die. When you tap it on the table, it displays a number from 1 to 6 by lighting up the appropriate number of LEDs in the same layout as found on traditional non-electric dice.
The kit uses a piezo element for detecting the tap on the table and uses a pre-programmed microcontroller. It also includes a laser cut acrylic base and battery. There’s no programming required and a beginner can get the kit together in about an hour or so. You will need a soldering iron and basic tools. Also, a dab of glue or double-sided tape is recommended as well.
Note: Due to the requirements of shipping the battery in this kit, orders may take longer to process and therefore do not qualify for same-day shipping. Additionally, these batteries can not be shipped via Ground or Economy methods to Alaska or Hawaii. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Easy assembly. Nice base and supports. I prefer the acrylic over other dice kits that use PCB for top and bottom with metal supports. Bought two and I need to buy two more once they come back in stock.
Easy to assemble. It worked well… for 5 minutes, then died forever.
Edit: Sparkfun sent me a new piece, which I assembled, and it has been working fine since then. My kids like it
