Mr. Whiskers is a cat-shaped circuit board with eyes that light up that plays a PWM sound sample when stroked.
The eyes are illuminated by a pair of 5mm reverse-mounted through-hole yellow LEDs that shine through the material of the circuit board from the back.
Two touch-sensitive switches in the head recognise when Mr. Whiskers is being stroked and trigger a gentle meow from the piezo speaker (not especially loud but he is only a wee cat).
The kit uses through-hole components but the construction is a little unusual - call it pseudo SMD. It's easier to solder than a full surface-mount design but a little harder than a regular through-hole kit. This construction technique allows for the outward-facing side of the board to be free of solder joints and look neater.
Mr. Whiskers can be attached to clothing with the supplied clip and pin.
The kit requires a 3V CR2032 coin cell (not included).
