The kit uses a piezo element for detecting the tap on the table and uses a pre-programmed microcontroller. It also includes a laser cut acrylic base and battery. There’s no programming required and a beginner can get the kit together in about an hour or so. You will need a soldering iron and basic tools. Also, a dab of glue or double-sided tape is recommended as well.
Note: Due to the requirements of shipping the battery in this kit, orders may take longer to process and therefore do not qualify for same-day shipping. Additionally, these batteries can not be shipped via Ground or Economy methods to Alaska or Hawaii. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
