    I believe that would be the video that is embedded in the first link in this news article actually...

    freaking hilarious when the attendant are struggling to turn them back on!

    At the risk of blowing your mind, I feel compelled to inform you at this point that there is an entire website which is intrinsically linked to these forums.

    Imagine how much mischief would be caused if this was used in a argos/curry's/commet etc. haha I imagine some more videos (like the one above) will appear shortly.

    i call bull****. that would imply they have staff who take time and effort to write articles, and i just totally ignore them. and that couldn't be right.

    Funny how this is big news now. A female once took that device apart and improved on the idea. She sells kits for the DIYer.

    adafruit industries... they have several good kits for the soldering freaks out there.
    Sorry I hope this isn't considered spam.

    I just thought that this should have been open-source from the get-go.

    I used to share an office with them and ignored them so it's more plausible than you think :p

    Why was I not told this product existed?

    I just ordered one of the 'pro' models... I know I could build my own, but the inventor deserves my money.

    Haha, I cant wait to take this baby for a spin.
