Overview

Circuit Hacking Kits are available for purchase by request at Circuit Hacking Mondays. Tools and materials necessary to complete the kits are all located for use at Noisebridge.


Price List - Arduinos, Arduino Clones, and Supplies

Name Price Description
DC BoArduino kit (Arduino clone) $20 This Arduino clone acts just like an Arduin. It also works with the latest Arduino software. For many projects it can even be preferable! The kit includes all parts necessary, the assembly is straightforward and well-documented. Since this design doesn't include a USB chip, you'll want an FTDI USB 232-TTL cable. Since the cable plugs right into the Boarduino, you can use one cable for multiple Boarduinos.
Volksduino $20 The "Volksduino" is a low cost, high power, shield compatible, complete Arduino-compatible board kit. Based on the Duemilanove, it comes with a 5 V / 1 A voltage regulator and has an option for a 3.3 V regulator. The Volksduino was designed by Applied Platonics to have a low component count and to be "easy for anyone of any age to put together".
FTDI cable (needed for BoArduino) $20 The FTDI cable is a USB to Serial (TTL level) converter which allows for a simple way to connect TTL interface devices to USB.


Price List - Kits Not Requiring An Arduino

Name Price Description
TV-B-Gone Kit $20  
TV-B-Gone (ready made, keychain) $20  
Brain Machine Kit $20 Brain Machine provides you with a fun, easy way to meditate, all the while being very photogenic! They work with lights and sounds that pulse at a 14-minute-long meditation sequence of brainwave frequencies. Your brain synchronizes to this meditation sequence, and you meditate. It's that easy! And the beautiful colors and patterns you vividly imagine along the way make it fun and enjoyable. The Brain Machine works with blinking lights. Be aware that blinking lights are not good for some people, especially those prone to seizures.
TripGlasses (ready made Brain Machine) $40  
Mignonette Game Kit $30  
Trippy RGB Wave Kit $10  
Trippy RGB Light Kit $20  
Atari Punk Console Kit $20  
MiniPOV3 Kit $20  
USBtinyISP (AVR programmer) $20  
RetroScanner $10  
MintyBoost kit (charger for gadgets with USB) $20  
LEDcube Kit $20  
Drawduino Kit $20 Drawdio is an electronic pencil that lets you make music while you draw! It's great project for beginners: An easy soldering kit with instant gratification. Essentially, its a very simple musical synthesizer that uses the conductive properties of pencil graphite to create different sounds. The result is a fun toy that lets you draw musical instruments on any piece of paper. Runs on a single AAA battery. Use any pencil - mechanical or plain. The kit comes with a 2B pencil, the softer the lead the better. Ridiculously fun for all ages.
TV-B-Gone Pro (not a kit) $50 Turn off TVs in public places from up to 100 meters away! Internal rechargeable battery. Comes with battery charger.
