I'm not gonna lie - I wouldn't have any idea where to start on a lot of these crazy do-it-yourself projects we cover. Build your own tablet? Forget about it. This little Simon Says kit, however, I could probably manage.
You know, Simon Says, that game where you try to remember and duplicate the increasingly complex colour patterns dished out by an overly aggressive robotic playmate (lowercase "p" robotic playmate, you perv). Well now you can test your skills of memorisation as well as your skills of instruction-following and dead-simple electronics assembly with this $US25 kit from the Makers Shed. Yes! Now check "build something with a soldering iron" and/or "finally get back at Simon" off your bucket list. [Makers Shed via Make]
