Pandamonium is a PCB in the shape of a Panda head with colour changing RGB LEDs for eyes. It can be worn as a badge or used a SAO. It is a kit so you will need to solder it up.
The kit comes in the following types:
Badge: Use the included badge pin to wear the Panda with pride!
SAO: Add to your #Badgelife with the latest 1.69BIS standard compatible Panda!
Both: Your will have to decide at some stage if your Panda is a badge or an SAO, but why not prolong that decision til later!
All kits include the following:
What else you get will depend on the options you select.
If you select the badge kit, the following will be included:
If you select the SAO kit, the following will be included:
If you select Both, you will get everything included in the SAO and Badge kit (please read the SAO section though)
You can select between two types of LEDs, check out the tweets to see the difference:
If there is another type of LED you think I should be offering please let me know! I also have a few different colour standard LEDs so if there is a single colour you would prefer, message me and we'll see what we can do!
There is a 1.69BIS SAO connector available for the badge, there are some things you should know about it though:
I'm going to cover myself and say no. The PCB does use lead-free HASL, but there is plenty of risks for a young child:
Time: 5/10 mins. Additional Tools Required: Tweezers Difficulty: Easy/Medium
It's a pretty straight forward board to solder up, but some of the components are SMD.
Make sure to place the LEDs on the front of the PCB! The anode of the LED (the long leg) is the inside pin of both eyes.
Be careful to not burn yourself when soldering the badge pin, it takes quite amount of heat and stays hot for a while! After soldering the badge pin, let it cool down for around 5 minutes or so.
If you don't have a tweezers, you might be better of just bridging the resistor pads with solder. The LEDs will be brighter but will work fine. (you should buy one btw!)
