Prototypes In For The Learning CirKit (06/27/2013)

We've got the first batch of prototypes in—check them out below! These will definitely change on the next rev, but only slightly by changing the magnetic connectors. Originally, we were going to glue down magnets. However, this was very limiting. Now, we are in the process of getting custom-made brass connectors to hold the magnets. The upfront cost is quite steep, so we will try to get our funds through Kickstarter. Once we get everything settled and finalized, we will post more details. You can go to Products → The Learning CirKit for more information on the kit.

Multimeter (prototype v1)
Figure 1. First Rev Of Our Multimeter (Bare PCB with LCD)

Above is our multimeter, which will be essential to both learning the basic concepts, as well as verifying your design. The probes will have magnetic ends so they can easily be used to check various parts of your circuit. We put it next to a penny so you can see how small and compact it is unlike standard multimeters.

Figure 2. First Rev Of Our Resistor and LED Components (Bare PCBs)

Here we have the resistor and LED components. Again we've put it next to a penny for size reference. Notice how the silkscreen is designed so that the physical circuit will visually look like a regular schematic/circuit diagram.

About KinesthetiKits

Who Are We?

KinesthetiKits (pronounced Kinesthetic Kits) was founded in May of 2013 with one goal in mind: to help students learn by doing. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn through discovery and exploration--not just through lectures or slides. Through our kits, we try to bridge the gap between pure theory and practicality, without diluting the subject content.

List of Products

Electronics

  • The Learning CirKit

An educational kit designed to help students get a hands-on experience with the basic concepts of circuit theory. This kit is perfect for introductory physics classes (i.e. electricity unit) and introductory circuits classes, but can also be used by anyone who wants to dive into the wonderful world of electronics.

  • The Learning CirKit - Digital Logic

Like the The Learning CirKit, this kit helps to introduce students to the basics of digital logic--the foundation of all computer hardware. This kit is great for introductory digital logic classes and anyone who wants to learn about the basics of digital logic.

The Learning CirKit

Status - Prototyping Stage

We are still in the prototyping stages at the moment. Once we have a full prototype of the kit ready, we will post pictures and announce an expected release date! See below for a preview of what's to come!

Kit Preview

Students will be able to create basic circuits by simply snapping components and wires together magnetically, including a compatible custom-made digital multimeter. All components are designed so that it is easy to go from a circuit diagram to a real electrical circuit. Basically, the circuit created with the kit will look almost identical to your standard circuit diagram. No more confusion from criss-crossing wires on a breadboard!

Kit contents will include the following:

  • Resistors
  • LEDs
  • Wires
  • Voltage Source
  • Custom-Made Digital Multimeter
    • Leads have magnetic ends, making measurements a breeze!
