postheadericon In the Maker Shed: LED Cube Kit

IMG_2182 2.JPG

The LED Cube kit is an animated 3x3x3 cube composed of 27 individual single-color LEDs. This project was a popular hack of the MiniPOV, and now the Maker Shed carries a kit that contains all the parts needed to make you own. The LED Cube kit was inspired by the amazing color 3D Borg cube by Das-Labor.

Andrew Stock created a super-easy-to-use web-based tool that lets you visually design your own animation patterns for the LEDcube. The results can be easily pasted into the LEDcube firmware and programmed into the LEDcube. (When creating Code, choose “Height-depth-width order”). His web-based tool can be found here. (works best using Firefox)

postheadericon In the Maker Shed: 6-in-1 Solar Robotic kit


The 6-in-1 Educational Solar Robotic Kit is an excellent beginner building kit designed to teach how solar power is used to drive a small motor. Kids use the 21 snap-together parts (no tools required) to build 6 different working models including an airboat, car, windmill, puppy, and 2 different airplanes. Solar building kits teach children the benefits of solar energy, while they create a toy that’s fun to play with and requires no batteries. Educators, science museums, and hobbyists will surely appreciate the durability, educational value, and endless hours of amusement for children and adults too! Ages 10 and up.

The New Edison-Style Cup Phonograph Kit from the Maker Shed uses the same principles Thomas Edison used to make his original recordings. The Gakken version replaces Edison’s waxed pipe and stylus with a plastic cup and a needle, but the end results are the same. MAKE is proud to be the exclusive distributor in North America for these brilliant kits, part of Gakken’s Sophisticated Science Kit for Adults series.
