9V battery and connector
Electrical wires and soldering gear.
Assorted PCB wire female connectors and male pins.
Slider switch
A 3D printer, or ask a friend with one to help out
Various 3D parts. The models for these are available here.
Custom PCB board.
Custom app
With all the materials needed in hand, it is time to get on with the build.

The first thing to do is print out the 3D part you’ll need for this build. We have included the models above, but you can also find them here.”
