About MakeKit

MakeKit AS is a Norwegian company founded in March 2019 by Henning Pedersen and Steinar Holøs. We make DIY kits that make technology accessible and easier to understand through engaging and cross-curriculum problem-based STE(A)M learning. 

 

Technology is all around us and becomes increasingly important,  but also less accessible and harder to understand. Technology becomes smaller and less accessible. The understanding of technology is the skills and knowledge of the 21. century. 

In MakeKit we make these skills accessible in an engaging and relevant package. 

We make students achieve in STE(A)M subjects, get technological self-confidence and the sense of achievement. 

 

All our kits are maker friendly, which means students can use both traditional tools and modern tools like 3D-printers and laser cutters to design their own constructions and test different hypothesis and do physics experiments. 

They use micro:bit and the makecode platform which are defined as “high roof, low ceiling”. Easy to start with, and you can do pretty advanced stuff. 



*Micro:bit is a small microcomputer made for use in education. It is super easy to start using for coding, with several integrated sensors, buttons and LED-screen. Micro:bit us used in schools all over the world and is now a standard tool for many teachers.

Whether you have access to a modern maker-space with 3D-printers and laser cutters, or more traditional tools like saws, knife and scissors Wonder:Kit lets you build and change the construction of multiple kits. 

Technology is all around us and becomes increasingly important,  but also less accessible and harder to understand.  

In MakeKit we make these skills of the 21. century accessible in an engaging and relevant package.

Air:bit

Air:bit V2 The micro:bit drone

The micro:bit drone got even better!

Air:bit is a micro:bit based drone kit. This makes it easier than ever to get full access to see and modify the drone’s code. From simple block programming to advanced javascript algorithms, Air:bit 2 covers it all. Download and print frames or design your own!

Air:bit V2 uses the powerful WonderKit control board and sports a ICM-20602 precision gyroscope and accelerometer, as well as a motor controller, a quick charger and a battery protector circuit. The versatile system allows for modifications such as smart gloves, camera or servo add on or even a lidar collision system. Air:bit V2 is repairable and part of the versatile WonderKit system. 

Air:bit V2 needs one micro:bit (V2 recommended) as a main controller, while the remote can be another micro:bit (V1 or V2 both works fine) or an app (iOS or Android).

FAQ

Better control and modification: Air:bit V2 has a totally new control board that lets you change all the code and algorithms including PID and sensor fusion. V1 had a secondary processor that was very hard to configure or program. 

Faster charger: Air:bit V2 charges twice as fast (less than 1 hour)

Versatile: The included WonderKit control board is so versatile it can be turned into a hovercraft, robot or even a self-balancing 2-wheel robot. It is now much easier to add i2c-compatible sensors thanks to the new i2c plugin by Bill Siever.

Lower price: We dropped the extra processor, this reduces production costs.

About 7 minutes. But most people will not be flying without landing and re-aligning the drone, so the “playtime” is much longer.

Air:bit V2 is first and foremost a manually operated drone that will help practice motoric skills by the pilot. Kids with “gaming hands” will often grasp the controller intuitively while others will need some practice. Another micro:bit acts as a remote controller, using the motion sensor (accelerometer) on the micro:bit will give a precise control of the drone’s pitch and roll motion. Alternatively, an iOS or android device can act as a remote over Bluetooth.

Air:bit V2 needs manual control by a pilot while flying, but we are working on a positioning system that will allow multiple drones to be flown in formations. 

You can download 3d-files and print more frames, design your own layout, or make a glove controller. (see https://www.makekit.no/airbit-docs)

You can also use the parts, including  motors, controller board and battery to make a fan-powered boat, sledge or hovercraft. With the external ports you can connect external sensors like lidar, sonar or a small servo. 

MakeCode blocks, javascript, makecode Python or Micropython. There is currently no library for the Micropython language.

Hover:bit

Hover:bit V2 – The micro:bit hovercraft

Hover:bit is a true STEAM kit that combines arts, crafts, science and coding. Powerful drone motors fill a pillow with air to remove friction, then push it forward. Hover:bit can drift swiftly up to 30 km/h. As a class kit, hover:bit comes with templates that lets students recycle cardboard and other materials to design their own remote controlled vehicles. Hover:bit V2 is compatible with WonderKit and utilizes the built-in gyro for anti-spin and a more steady drifting experience.

FAQ

Hover:bit V1 was very costly to produce because it used the same expensive drone controller as the Air:bit V1. V2 now gives you the option between a much more affordable stand-alone package or an even cheaper add-on package if you already have WonderKit Start Pack. 

Hover:bit V2 uses the packaging for some main parts as well as natural birch plywood. Students can also use recycled cardboard to design their own crafts, using the stencils that’s included in the WonderKit version of Hover:bit. 

Hover:bit is made from the highest quality, airplane grade birch plywood and will take a lot of beating. It is also fully repairable as all parts can be replaced easily. 

Hover:bit is meant for dry, even surfaces like short carpet floors, concrete or asphalt. However, you can convert it into a boat or even a snow sledge to drift on frozen lakes.

No, but it can actually drive upside down! You need a ceiling where the surface is smooth and even. All you need to do is swap the propeller for a reverse one and set a higher power on the cushion motor.
