What went wrong?

  • Some people soldered the LEDs in the wrong order, IMHO there should be some "+" and "-" labelling on the silkscreen of the PCB so that people at least ask themselves which leg of the LED is the "+" or the "-".
  • One lamp of the DIY third lamp did not work
  • We did not know how to debug the board if it does not work out of the box
  • Maybe have some floating battery to test the circuit before soldering the battery
  • There should be a switch (in the front) in order to avoid draining the battery during the night
  • There should be a magnet to put it on the fridge

What's next?

  • Make another workshop, find more kids
  • Re-order the PCB at DirtyPCB or OSHPark
  • Fix the PCB with improvements
  • Order a Christmas tree, and add an esp8266?
