We over-built the entire thing. From too much code to too many lasers to tearing apart an old DVD drive I took a lot of side-trips. It was all a lot of fun and I learned a lot about lasers (masers), lenses, servos, python, and about how to finish a project inside the guidelines. Middle school is a lot to get used to and a big science project really helped. There were mis-steps and side goofs, but some how I tied it all together and salvaged a 100% score.
“I really like bread, milk and eggs” she said… This is article four of five, from my 2017 science project “Rock, Paper, Lasers” – this is the science project presentation. Presenters were allowed to display their project, show slides and videos, and serve a snack. I wanted to bring my laser safety fire box into school along with the lasers too, but my teacher would not permit me to bring lasers of this sort into school. She was right, tho she said it in a funny way. “I really like bread, milk and eggs” she said. I get it.

Recently, a product vendor was wondering how their product got a particular rating, not higher. I tried to explain that to this blog, a rating of 3 is a really high rating, since it means that the product itself was “very good” on all three major counts. On most sites, 5 is “good” and 1 or 0 is “bad” and that’s sorta it. I have always wanted the notabomb ratings to mean a little something more than just good and bad products.
Welcome Amir to the website!! He has been a friend of mine for a long time. I can’t really remember how we became friends, but my dad says that we met through the glass window of an apartment building. This was a good first kit for amir, why? a maker badge would be too simple for him and a sound to light meter would be too complicated for anybody for their first kit. so I gave him the Vellman cancel kit. He’s always been really smart and really good at computers and legos and video games and tech so I figured he’d be really good at soldering and electronics.
Jonah came over to my house recently and i had him solder the Evil Mad Scientist Flickery Flame LED kit that Lenore had sent me and the kit worked. Jonah finished it in one sitting, just over one hour. This kit was not just your average maker badge kit. It was more complex and it had multiple settings. Like most evil mad scientist soldering pads these were amazing quality.
This is a slide show, click on the photo below to begin. Lenore from Evil Mad Scientist wrote me!!! Ok, I wrote her first, but she wrote back!! My english class had me write a letter to a company. I decided to write mine to Evil Mad Scientist, to be specific i wrote to Lenore, but
I have always liked sound to light meter kits since the first one i made. My very second kit was the Vellman vu meter. Ever since then sound to light meters have had a place in my heart. I think you can tell that though because of the amount of sound to light kits i do.
This kit is simple and cool and it feels satisfying when you finish it. I would suggest this product to educators who teach an engineering class. I would suggest this because it is simple, like i said and it has very little instructions so the students will need you for help.
I would suggest this product to someone who needs to me sure sound in an uncontrolled environment. or a person who needs practice soldering at a slightly higher level. This is now one of my favorite kits because of the fact that is can be used as just a soldering kit and it has a practical use… BECAUSE OF THE SWITCH. The switch finally makes it usable in real-life.
