It was so easy to assemble that my 6 year old participated in the assembly as we watched the video instructions. That was the point of ordering this, so that he can be inspired and participate in building it. It is really cool that this is just like a little television. My son enjoyed playing with it and watching the videos. He's so excited that he helped assemble it that he wants to bring it to show and tell.
This was an awesome and easy to put together kit. Everything fit together and worked well. It was the hot ticket at the family White Elephant Gift Exchange. I ripped a few holiday favorites from DVD - it was excellent to see the Grinch reptile-sliding around in miniature.
I don't necessarily recommend model paints, at least not last minute, hunched over and air curing in a cold garage. I tested with a brown sharpie and think that would have been easier, more precise and accurate. I only had a fine point so tried the model paints and cheap brushes at Michaels and that did not serve me well. "Why is it sticky?"
Not sure about the beige contrast color - perhaps a colored pencil if you're careful.
You can try your finishes out on the inside back of the case.
I don't have any pictures, but I've ordered and received my second kit so will see if I can upload pictures when I put that one together and try an alternate finish.
The kit assembled quickly and easily I was able to easily convert a video and add it to the SD card. The only problem is that once you insert the card you can't retrieve it again. The plastic grabs onto the boards quite tightly and I feels like unsnapping the boards to remove them would break something. I was eventually able to coax the card out with SMD assembly tweezers (that not any epole have) and I added a flag made of electrical tape to hang out of the bottom of the TV so I couold pull the card as needed Other than not having a way of pulling the card,I'd have to say this was the perfect hac.
I plan to conduct classes on creating smart clothes based on Arduino Lily for labor teachers.
First one did not work (could not program the device). TinyCircuts was kind enough to send me a replacement and that one worked!
I expected to have to do a lot but the process of getting a video playing that I had uploaded was much easier than I anticipated.
I filmed video on my iPhone. Emailed it to myself. Downloaded and converted the video to the custom TSV format, uploaded to the SD card and voila!
Hello, anyone knows how to play a video on loop automatically after turning the tiny screen on?
