No soldering from Minty Geek

Published on: 18th July 2012

Minty Geek produces a range of portable electronic kits which come with all components and easy-to-follow instructions in the signature mint tin.

The Minty Geek range targets the educational/geek market; there is a kit to cater for every level of expertise. The 101 Electronics Kit needs no soldering and is a suitable introduction to building and designing circuits. Projects include a cookie jar alarm, egg timer, stress test and more. All components are re-usable.

Other kits available include The Torch-in-a-Tin kit, which has both red and white lights, and a directable light source. The Watercolour kit is probably the smallest kit on the market, and comes complete with eight half-pan colours, brush, pencil and water bottle.

New on the market is Starlights, an LED kit suitable for creating illuminated designs on clothing, bags and other materials.

About to launch is the PeppaMint, which teaches you how to program your own gadgets, using the Arduino programming language, and build your own mini console using an eight by eight mini matrix and sound generator.
