This little cloud may look mean, but we promise it’s fun and easy to solder up!
This is a super fun and simple storm cloud blinky board. It has 3 self-flashing LEDs that act as the clouds lightning bolts! It also has an on/off switch and includes a CR2032 battery. Robyn made this board for people to have a fun, easy project to learn how to solder. This is her second design and thought going with an angry storm cloud would be a fun opposite of the original Happy Rain Cloud. For more fun kits in our Solder Weather Series we have The Chilly Snow Cloud, Radiant Rainbow, and Sunny Surprise.
This board was made using black substrate and clear soldermask which shows off the copper beautifully, check out the back!
For more fun, you can order 2 and follow our instructions on Hackaday on how to make them into a pair of flashy earrings!
