The tiny engineer superhero emergency kit from saar drimer contains a PCB, n-channel MOSFET, resistors and more. Sounds like an awesome kit for educators to equip their young engineers with (or even a nice gift from a student to an educator) – it’s portable and has a great look!
The concept was to create a novelty yet useful kit that’s packaged like a product that you’d see on a high street shop and that could be given as a gift. I wanted to use this kit to test the market for novelty kits for engineers (not necessarily to test if people are generally interested in kits — we know that they are!)
The kit includes the PCB (ENIG finish), n-channell MOSFET, two resistors, capacitor and LED that when soldered create a working circuit (the LED lights up). There’s a guide card, and something I haven’t seen done before: a laser cut and engraved compressed cellulose sponge.
