Holiday gift suggestions for the hardware hackers in your life - 2021 edition

Great list! I would like to add the below. I really enjoy building large electronic kits with lots of soldering, I’m interested to know if anyone else has anything along these lines too. I’ve built a OneTesla kit in the past but not tried any of the others (yet!).

Also for Pi-based gaming handhelds: PiBoy DMG - Kit :smiley:

I ordered this one for myself: Galaksija | Crowd Supply . It’s a retro computer with a bit of soldering involved.

@jmakivic this looks awesome! Let us know what it’s like when you get it :slight_smile:

I think it is time I step up to a Smart Toaster. I need to be able to control my toasting from my phone, and check in on it when I am not home, via the internet. Will this do the job do you think @chrisys?


I definitely think you need this toaster David, that touchscreen is very special.

Wow, lots of great suggestions here. I’m gonna add some amazing Learn to Solder badges for people who wanna want their hacker friends to learn soldering in 2022 wink wink #BadgeLife
