Description [Hide]

The Larson scanner is named after Glen A. Larson, the man responsible for producing both the original Battlestar Galactica and Knight Rider television shows.

The kit is very easy to build, and includes a pre-programmed microcontroller, battery holder, and nine ultra-bright red LEDs. Once you've built it, you'll have a beautiful back-and-forth scanning red light, ready for incorporation into various sci-fi props, costumes, and pumpkins. The kit is available red 10 mm (huge LEDs) with diffused lenses.

The Larson Scanner is sold as a soldering kit. Basic electronic soldering skill is required, and you provide standard soldering tools: a soldering iron + solder and small ("flush") wire clippers. No additional knowledge of electronics is presumed or required -- and no programming is required either.

Easy "through-hole" construction ("No surface-mount nothin' nowhere!"). Clear, full-color printed instructions are provided with the kit. If you would like a preview, you can download a copy of the assembly guide here (3.8 MB PDF file).

This is an open-source project, designed to be hackable. Design files and source code for this project can be found at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories.
