This kit is both great to learn about soldering electronics and will also remain useful at the end. The tweeting bird water monitor detects the moisture level in the soil of your plant and tweets when it is too low. Water the plant and bird will go back to sleep. The kit steps though the components on the board (micro controller, buzzer, LED, resistors…), what they are used for and shows you how to solder them.
Started because my partner kills plants. Then schools picked it up and now I make it available to get more people into electronics!
It's uniquely shaped and has a nice sound that is not typical of electronics.
We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
I'm John, I run Tinker Electric (http://www.tinkerelectric.com/) in Australia. We are obsessed with making interesting products that invoke curiosity and intrigue, but are functional too!
My background is in electronics engineering but have been tainted by software and what was needed to get the job done. As a result I know a lot about nothing.
I've programmed mine sites, cloud systems, micro controllers. Designed electronics for Internet Of Things applications, toys, farming equipment (one to track sheep having sex), an automatic cocktail maker to boot.
Couple more that I'm allowed to talk about here: http://www.tinkerelectric.com/portfolio/
Look forward to chatting.
