    Wow! A great video!

    FWIW, the very first few of many boards are still assembled by hand. These are usually prototypes, and it's a good way to get a few so the designers can check out that their designs actually work.

    We've sure come a long way in the 57 or so years that I've been "doing" electronics!

    That was fun to watch. Now to figure out how to ship the boards, inexpensively.

    That was awesome...and exhausting! Keep up the great work, Sparkfun!

    Component bounce at ~8:25. Slightly too much over push on placement causing the board to bounce :)
