Since our kid turned 3 we’ve loved playing Turing Tumble together! I now can’t wait for us to play Spintronics as well!
My first take as I put the components together was like recreating devices as seen in a Jules Verne movie. They are fascinating to watch. Of course, building the mechanical circuits beginning with simple to more difficult leading to an understanding about how electronic components work. The function of each of the different mechanical components is remarkably akin to each corresponding electronic component..
I graduated with a degree in Electronics Engineering a few years ago and I could not have imagined that something like this was even possible. It would have been so much easier to grasp fundamental electronics concepts if I had Spintronics in high-school or university!
Even though these days I write software and I haven't really worked with circuits in years, I found myself glued to this Spintronics kit like a fly glued to a block of sugar! Going through the puzzle book feels like I'm playing an actual steampunk RPG and I'm levelling myself up as the story progresses, haha. I only started playing yesterday, but I can already tell I'm going to spend countless hours on Spintronics and that it's going to be so much fun!
Spintronics Act One
Ever since I got my Spintronics I find it hard to not do anything with them, I always find myself enjoying myself with making some kind of circuit with them, I'm very grateful about ordering them and I can see myself giving them to me children in the future.
