Rudolph Reindeer Project Kit

Product Details

Rudolph is our ever popular Xmas special!

This project in an ideal introduction to electronics and first PICAXE project, using an 8 pin microcontroller to create a programmable interactive Christmas decoration with green LED 'eyes', a piezo sounder 'voice' that can play Christmas tunes and of course a large red flashing 'LED' nose.

Rudolph can be programmed to react to touch (via a push switch) and light (via a miniature LDR light sensor) and play a tune of your choice (naturally 'Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer' is always a popular choice!). Rudolph can be used with any software application that supports the PICAXE hardware.

An optional infra-red sensor (part LED020) can also be added to the board so that you can switch Rudolph on and off with your TV remote control, or you can use the AXE108S Infrared Upgrade kit to build your own remote control.

The kit Includes PCB and all electronic components, including a PICAXE-08M2 chip. Requires simple soldering.
