Thimble – the electronics building monthly subscription service

Thimble put together

Getting stuff in the mail is STILL one of the best experiences but as adults, most of what we get is people demanding money from us. Brighten up your mail service with Thimble, the monthly electronics subscription service.

There are all kinds of kits out there today that deliver snacks, geek goodness, and even yarn to your doorstep. Thimble is the same sort of thing only it specializes in delivering electronic projects that you can put together in your free time. This kit is for people who are new to electronics but friendly for both adults and children (13+).

Thimble complete

The first kit is a WiFi Robot and these are not the snap together projects that you find in the similar services like Tinkercrate. In order to complete this project, you will have to do some soldering but that’s just an excuse to buy yourself a new soldering iron. There are three, six, and 12 month subscriptions available through the Kickstarter but if you just want to test it out, the WiFi Robot Kit with Arduino board included is $79 and they begin shipping in April.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
