Kits are where it's at. With our Desktop Infinity Mirror Kit you'll get to make something wonderful with your hands, all in the span of an afternoon. But if you want, you can dive deeper, follow our tutorials, level-up your coding and make this thing truly your own.
Construct your own hypnotic marble-coaster with this superb Solarbotics kit. Watch as the marbles are cycled through synchronised mechanical arms using nothing more than laser-cut wood and a single motor.
Solarbotics Solar GraviTrack Marble Machine Kit is their newest addition to the Marble-Drop mechanism family. The Solar version pulse-moves the elegant hand-off mechanism that passes marbles to the top of a sweeping multi-level track. You will witness the fascinating step-by-step action of the arms as the geometry changes periodically
You build it, you turn it on, and ...it has other ideas. A finger extends, and turns itself off just as quickly as you turn it on. Weird and wonderful, it's a physical description of many aspects of life (how's that for the beginning of an artsy interpretation?).
The battery pack edition of the Marble Machine kit has splendid electromechanical appeal, delivering 8 steel balls down a laser-cut wood frame. Unlike its solar-powered cousin, it’s ready to run at your command.
The Snap Circuits Jr. 100 Experiments kit is a fantastic way to get started with electronics! It contains everything you need to build over 100 projects and contains 32 individual components and is sure to spark the imagination of young minds everywhere.
This is the latest version of our popular through-hole Simon Says Kit. We’ve made some changes to the board that should make it easier than ever for the beginner to build! All components are through-hole, making this kit a great place to start when you’re learning to solder. When building this kit, you’ll have a chance to solder a 28-pin microprocessor, LEDs, battery clips and more.
This Arduino beginner kit is a great way to learn how to use Arduino hardware. You'll get a basic introduction to the Arduino world and a range of products which can be used for a huge range of projects. Tutorials are prewritten and available online, they start from basic LED control to more advanced IR remote control. If you are new to microcontrollers and physical computing then this kit is for you!
Our RetroPie Gaming Kit with wired controllers (SNES style) rocket launches you with all the bits and pieces needed to revisit your favourite retro games, updated to the latest Raspberry Pi 4 platform.
You may be the greatest living banana pianist, but how will you ever know if you don’t make yourself a banana piano? Good news! That project and countless others are easier than you think with Makey Makey. Using the Makey Makey you can make anything into a key just by connecting a few alligator clips
This is a stereo amplifier kit designed to make use of the STA540 power amplifier IC. Once this kit is completed you have a fully functional, two-channel audio amplifier, complete with a standby switch, volume control and indicator LEDs. The kit also includes a 6400BG heatsink for the STA540 to dissipate any damaging heat.
The Makeblock mBot is the perfect way to introduce robotics and programming to young makers. Not only can the mBot be assembled using the step-by-step instructions and pre-written code, but it encourages modification and expansion with the rest of the Makeblock kits and add-ons.
The MakeBlock Ultimate 2.0 kit is the perfect way to begin or expand your robotic adventures. It contains over 160 robotic parts and over 80 electronic components which can be used in multiple configurations to build your next robotic overlord.
If you're after a high-quality, no frills iron, then the Hakko RED is for you. 60W ensures plenty of heat for the most demanding project, and a high-quality iron will maintain it's heat and last forever.
The digital multimeter (DMM) is an essential tool in every electronic enthusiasts arsenal. The SparkFun Digital Multimeter, however, is not your average multimeter, it features a loud continuity sound, current/voltage sense, and quality probes. You can use the multimeter to measure DC and AC voltage, DC current, resistance, continuity, and test diodes. With this version we’ve done away with the bright flashy colors that can get us into trouble and gone with a nice, neutral gray. This multimeter should provoke no strong feelings one way or the other, we know this because our guts say “maybe.”
CamJam, is a collaboration between The Pi Hut and Cambridge University, they sell electronics kits to support the goals of beginner Makers. Primarily using the Python language, these kits help you to get started with physical computing and robotics.
