I like playing dice games like mensch, snakes & ladders, yahtzee, and …. Nowadays everything appears in modern form, so it must be very fun to have a modern dice, an electronic dice with LEDs and a microcontroller. If you want to make a modern dice follow this instructable.

Step 1: What You Need

To make this dice you need the following components and tools:
  • Printed circuit (find files in the next step)
  • Copper board
  • Sandpaper
  • Iron
  • Circuit board acid
  • 1mm drill
  • Soldering tools
  • 1x PIC12F675 microcontroller + socket
  • 7x 5mm LEDs
  • 7x 470ohm resistors (1/8 watt)
  • 1x 10k resistor
  • 1x Simple push button
  • 1x 3V coin battery + battery holder(I couldn't find a battery holder so I made it myself)
Cool job! I especially like the DIY coincell holder on the bottom, I am SO gonna copy that for my own projects.<br>
Good Job Vahid! :))
Man! very beautiful! Get a mac style casing designed and market it! The circuit is perfect!
looks kool, how about encasing it in resin, but somehow leave a hole for battery access and roll button?
Yes, and at last the dice looks nicer.
You could try switching to smt parts and get it closer to dice size.
Good idea
