Resistors – part 2

23.01.2017

We already gave you an introduction into the matter of resistors last week. Today, we will tell you about the different kinds of resistors: The first special resistor is the LDR, it´s a resistor that changes its resistance depending on the light intensity. This means that it doesn´t change mechanically, e.g. by pressing a button, […]

Resistor for dummies

13.01.2017

At first, resistor sounds like a not wanted property but in reality it’s a compelling characteristic. Each body or object has a specific resistance. A piece of wire has a relatively low resistance which is why it conducts electricity quite well. With the help of resistors, the current flow can be manipulated or you can […]

New brick sets 2017

14.11.2016

We are going to give you a short forecast of our new sets today. You’ve probably already heard of our Logic Set. It will include the typical logic gates, like the AND, OR, NAND, NOR, XOR, XNOR as well as several conductors and flip-flops. The set is almost ready and we are working especially hard […]
