Simon Tilts - Through-Hole Soldering Kit (KIT-12634)
RETIRED PRODUCT - We've stopped stocking this product or it has been retired by the manufacturer and is no longer for sale. This page remains available for its resources and as a source of potential interest.
This through-hole soldering kit is very similar to the Simon Says kit; First, it’s a great way to learn how to solder, second, it’s a fun game to play and third, it’s a development platform for future projects. The main difference with Simon Tilts is that it involves motion; instead of pressing buttons, the player is challenged to tilt the game. It’s a bit of a 3D mind trip, but so much fun to play!
Great care has been taken with the PCB design to make it very user friendly. It’s a great place to start when you’re learning to solder. To sense direction, the kit uses a new custom molded part, the tilt arm. In addition to being fun to watch in action, the tilt arms do an excellent job of sensing the position.
In addition to having a fun game to play, after soldering this kit together you will have a greater knowledge of through-hole soldering and the tools, techniques, and terminology required to populate your own PCB prototype. You will also have a development platform with 7 outputs (LEDs and buzzer), motion sensing (tilt sensor), and serial for debugging.
