Description: No, this kit won't help you scan for Larsons. The Larson Scanner kit is actually named after Glen A. Larson, the man responsible for producing both the original Battlestar Galactica and Knight Rider television shows. Why? Look at the thing: it has KITT written all over it! Or Cylon... if that's your thing.
This easy-to-solder kit incorporates 9 large diffused LEDs and an ATtiny2313 microcontroller to create that awesome sweeping light effect from your favorite sci-fi shows. The microcontroller is pre-programmed, so you don't need to code or program anything if you don't want to! If you do want to do some hacking, though, the source code is available as well as all of the design files.
This is a great kit to get started with soldering because there are no surface mount components, it's also a great way to add blinkiness to your Halloween costume... or, like, you're favorite tie.
