Looking for a fun DIY Christmas project? Assemble and program this extra-large Rudolf figurine and make its LEDs shine all the colours of the rainbow! Ideal for both beginners and advanced makers!
This educational and fun kit combines soldering and programming skills in one XL-sized project. First, you will need to solder some simple components onto the unique gold plated circuit board. The components include fancy RGB LEDs that have a special diffused effect. Once the soldering work is finished, you will be able to program the colours and light effects of the different LEDs thanks to the onboard Arduino Nano Every. The Arduino will be pre-programmed with some basic LED effects, so your kit will work once you power it with the included adaptor. Or you can choose to write your own code based on the available example code.
