This steady hand game has a buzzer that sounds momentarily when the loop makes contact with the wire.
It also has an LED, which latches on when the buzzer sounds via the use of a thyristor. It then remains on so that even the briefest contact of the loop with the wire can be indicated. A push button is used to reset the LED.

Hi Callum, Unfortunately we don’t do a version of the kit without a buzzer. However you are able to leave the buzzer out of the circuit when it is built as it is connected to an output on the board.Posted byon Thursday, 24 November 2016
No we don’t do a giant steady hand game version, however in theory it would be possible to scale this up to a large version.Posted byon Tuesday, 15 March 2016
Hi Eric, Unfortunately we are unable to send a sample kit out to New Zealand. You can however order via our website for shipping to New Zealand.Posted byon Tuesday, 8 December 2015
To work out the estimated shipping firstly change the currency by selecting the currency drop down box above the search bar, however we don’t have the option for Australia dollars. Then place the item into the shopping cart, while viewing the shopping cart you can use the ‘estimate shipping and VAT’ to find out what the shipping cost would be to Australia.Posted byon Thursday, 5 March 2015
0voteA: It would depend on the ability of your students. There are only has 5 parts on the board, plus the various off board connections. Most people do it as a year 7 or year 8 project. If you want to evaluate one then schools can request a free sample. With regard to the base any material will do, wood is fine or we have some pictures of vacuumed formed cases, just click the camera icon by the ordering info.Posted byon Wednesday, 16 May 2012
0voteA: These kits are supplied with a reel of the solid core cable and a reel of the flexible cable. It is not possible to supply half a reel of cable, hence why we only sell them as a box of 24.Posted byon Wednesday, 19 October 2011

Hi Mark, The solid core cable that we use in this kit has a diameter of 1.626, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/2412-solid-core-cable-500g-reel.html. You would use the majority of it to make the course and a small amount to make the loop which passes over the course.Posted byon Wednesday, 29 March 2017
