This electronic die is based on the popular ATmega series of 8-bit micro controller chips. It features a set of LEDs to display a random number from 1-6 in a die format, and additionally, a couple of LEDs that act as a “Heads/Tails” coin toss. There are pushbuttons that allow you to “roll” the die or “flip” the coin. This is a low-power, battery-powered project. Approximately 20 seconds after any action, the micro controller will put itself to sleep so as to preserve battery power. So it’s not necessary to unplug or shut off the device.
The kit uses a breadboard as a base for construction. The breadboard has been around for decades and is an easy, versatile way to create prototype circuits. You can tear down the circuit and build it again, or build something new.
My 10-year-old nephew wanted to do an electronics project for his birthday. So this is what I came up with. We had a room full of 6th graders making it, to great success. So I decided to sell them online.
It's low powered, inexpensive, and fun. A great introduction to microcontrollers and breadboard electronics.
