Make your own solar powered blinking circuit board owl with this Kit. This amber eyed winking owl kit measures about 2″ by 1.25″. It has one hole at the top, making hanging easy. Wear it as a necklace, earrings, bond on a pin, or hang it in a window. The possibilities are up to you! If you have soldered projects before, this will be easy. There are only 19 pieces to solder onto the board, and all are through hole. Depending on your soldering savvy it may take anywhere from 30 to 45 min. Materials for hanging are not included
Once completed, your owl will charge up and blink in an ever-so-captivating manner. And if you’re a geek on the run (or just forget to solar charge your bling), the square also comes with a USB tab. Rock!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
