Chirping Cicada Electronic Soldering Kit

Velleman MK204 - Chirping Cicada Electronic Soldering Kit
Self-Assembly Soldering Kit
Velleman Mini Kits Range

This SELF-ASSEMBLY soldering kit generates an electronic cicada chirping sound and can be used for fun / recreational purposes or to simulate a hot summers night.

The cicada comprises three PCBs to mimic the shape of this popular insect as best as possible. The body is matt black and the two wings are a shiny yellow with golden tracks. To finish off the design, you can use the included components to add legs to your cicada. This way, it will have a real-life look!

So how does it work? There's an on-board phototransistor that makes the buzzer sound when it's dark while an orange LED flickers along. You'll have everybody fooled!

The bug is powered by a 9 V battery (not incl.) which will last about 30 hours when constantly in use.
