Looking for a fun DIY Christmas project? Assemble and program this extra-large Poly Reindeer 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 copper 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.
Find the example code and full manual in the manual and downloads tab of this product page.
The printed circuit board of this project is designed especially so you can add different add-ons. For example, add an OLED screen to display messages or program it to countdown the days until Christmas! Or add an IoT Tuya chip so your project can communicate with your smartphone. You can even add a sound microphone, motion sensor or light sensor.
This kit does not include a soldering iron, soldering tin, pliers or a soldering mat. All these tools are available on our site!
