MIT Flair gift giving

Pt 2359
Amy put together a gift guide containing some great gifts from folks who were at MIT… Adafruit is included!

DIY electronicsAdafruit Industries, founded by Limor Fried ’03, MNG ’05, sells kits and parts for original, open-source hardware electronics projects. Check out Drawdio (shown below) a pencil that draws music and was created by Jay Silver SM ’08; the Ice Tube clock, a Russian vacuum fluorescent tube clock; and Tweet-a-Watt, a wireless home-power monitoring system.
