Get ready for Brood-X! Ring in the summer with this beautiful electronic cicada soldering kit. The cicada consists out of three PCBs to mimic the shape of this popular insect as best as possible. The body is matte-black and the two wings are shiny yellow with golden tracks. To finish off the design, you can use the included components to add legs to the cicada bug making it look more realistic.
So how does it work? There's an on-board phototransistor that makes the buzzer sound when it's dark while an orange LED flickers along. You'll have everybody fooled!
The bug is powered by a 9 V battery (not incl.) which will last about 30 hours when constantly in use.
