Solder kits don't get any more beautiful than Boldport's butterfly! This wonderful bug flashes its red LEDs when its antennae touch, mimicing the movement of the wings. It uses a clock source and shift register in a particular configuration in order to generate its patterns. Learn about the basics of digital design, clocking and randomness thanks to this gadget.
