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. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Based on 2 ratings:
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
