24JanA button to learn electronics

If electronics for dummies does not work for you, there is a button that teaches you electronics.
The Digg button works as a beginner electronics that teaches how to solder and program microcontroller. The link with Digg is that each time you push the button, the button flashes “Dug” and increments the counter up to 999 “diggs”. The Digg kit was created by Phillip Torrone from Makezine, Kevin Rose from Digg and Limor Fried aka Ladyada from the MIT Media Lab.

The project is open source, and documented with parts list, schematics and code available.

NB: For every sale of the Digg button kit the designers are giving $1 to the EFF Electronic Frontier Foundation.
