HexPummer Lanterns!

Our K HP HexPummer has always been a good, steady kit, but once we got our laser-cutter, we started experimenting... and was it ever neat to tuck one of these into a faux Japanese-style lantern! After upgrading two of the four LEDs with super-crazy-mega-bright LEDs, this solar-powered night-activated light show is quite a cool decoration, suitable for a window-sill or hanging from a tree branch.

HexPummer Lantern

The K HP-L HexPummer Lantern kit comes with:

  • HexPummer kit featuring
    • SCC3733a-MSE 37x33mm 6.7V solar cell
    • 1000mAh NiMH batteries
    • 2 standard & 2 upgraded LEDs (upgrading all 4 draws too much power to last all night)
    • Extended solar cell wire for top or side-mounting
  • Laser-cut Mattboard lantern kit
  • Light-diffusing interior sleeve

But what about all the fine folks who already have the Hex Pummer, and want to add some of this awesome lantern goodness? Well, we have you covered - You'll find just the lantern construction materials (along with two super-crazy-mega-bright LEDs) available in the K HP-LA HexPummer Lantern Addon kit.

The best part is that you get to personalize it by choosing the lantern colour and the artwork set. We sampled some of these new colors and (custom MAKE) themes at the 2008 Austin Maker Faire.

Take a look at the art-sets and colours on the product page, and if you are so inclined, we may even be able to do personalized artwork for a really custom Lantern (contact us if you're interested!).

Oomlout - Solarbotics Edition!

Good news, good news! We've been following the Oomlout system of learning Arduino since last February, and we've finally finished putting together our own Solarbotics Edition of the open-source ARDX Arduino Experimenter's Kit. Besides just working with the fine folks at Oomlout to make sure our edition meets their high standards, we've also been contributing […]

BEP Application: Turbot

The Turbot is a member of the Scophthalmidae family of flatfish and is almost completely circular. Turbot is often found partially buried in the seabed in sand, gravel, rocks and sediment. Its fat content varies, but it usually contains roughly 1 gram of omega-3 fatty acids per 100g fillet. Barring advances in genetic engineering, we will not be building that kind of Turbot. However, this kind of Turbot can be built with a soldering iron.
