Spintronics is the next release from Upper Story, publisher of the excellent Turing Tumble. Whereas that game taught principles of computer science, Spintronics teaches principles of engineering, such as circuits, resistance, voltage, and switches. Ready to get those mental (and physical) gears turning?

Get started building fascinating mechanical circuits as you solve 67 fun, challenging puzzles from beginner to intermediate difficulty. The basis of all Spintronics builds is a battery, which runs on a pull-string. As the battery spins, it turns a gear unit, and using lengths of plastic chain, other mechanisms can be connected to it, including resistors, switches, ammeters, junctions, and capacitors.

Spintronics does for electrical engineering what Turing Tumble did for computer science: it takes concepts that seem mysterious to kids, abstracts away the complexity, and gamifies them into something fun and addicting. It lets players not only see, but feel how machines work.

Lightning can strike twice. Spintronics is fun, fascinating, easy-to-learn, and irresistible to play. 

Includes: 1 x Act One puzzle book | 1 x 6 V Spintronic battery (0.3 mAh) | 1 x 200 Ω Spintronic resistor | 1 x 500 Ω Spintronic resistor | 1 x 1000 Ω Spintronic resistor | 2 x Spintronic switches | 2 x Spintronics junctions | 1 x 1.2 mF Spintronic capacitor/voltmeter | 1 x Spintronic ammeter | 300 x Chain links | 2 x Base tiles | 5 x Tile connectors | 1 x Tile connector head 

Already own Spintronics Act One? Let us introduce you to Act Two! It's a large expansion that requires Act One to play. Includes a second book of puzzles, as well as advanced gadgets. The two kits integrate seamlessly together.

Suitable for kids aged 8 years and older
