  • Brain Machine (Meditate, Hallucinate, and Trip Out!)
  • LOL Shield (Lots Of LEDs!)
  • Trippy RGB Waves (interactive art blinky lights!)
  • LEDcube (low-res 3D animation!)
  • MiniPOV (write your message in the air!)
  • MintyBoost (charge your USB enabled gadgets!)
  • Hello My Name Is... badge (Geeky, blinky version of the sticker!)
  • microcontroller programmers (program all your AVR family chips!)
  • Arduino clones (make just about anything!)
