Soldi is a compact soldering kit that allows users to make and repair their own electronic devices at home.

As the maker boom continues to grow, machinery previously used in industrial processes is being adapted for use in the domestic sphere. Soldi sees a soldering machine turned into a piece of stationary, in which the heating station, soldering pen, and work plate mimic the form of a pencil holder, pen, and paper. A magnetic connector delivers heat to the pen from the heating station, eliminating the need for bulky wires, the kit providing a safe, and neat, work station within the home.
