Construct your own giant squid and steam-punk submarine. Each circles the other around a kelp forest, powered by the energy-concentrating SolarEngine.


Description [Hide]

We have designed the Squid Hunting to be a self-activating, solar-powered sculpture. Unlike other solar-powered devices, our SolarEngineTM  technology allows us to extract useful energy from light levels otherwise unusable by solar cells.

In direct sunlight, activation happens in seconds. Indoors, in a location like an interior office with fluorescent fixtures, you can expect motion every 6 minutes. As long as there is sufficient light to read by, this device still works, activating only when it has stored enough power to create useable motion.

Specifications:

  • Intermediate skill level - ages 12+
  • Basic soldering and tools required
  • Solar powered - no batteries needed
