    This would be awesome.

    • Well, there’s this… pretty close: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10874

      • yes it is close, there is another great reason to make this in the version I listed. What if I run a hackerspace? I would like to be able to buy one kit per member..not multiples of 3.

  • One addition that might be considered is an ESD protection mat-wrist strap kit. Always good to protect integrated circuits from nasty little zaps. I like my 3M mat, a bit pricey but it does the job well

  • Sparkfun, will you please make this in a single pack. I have been wanting to get all of these things, but buying them individually costs too much, and all of the kits come with things that I don’t need.

  • Euroversion, pretty please!

  • I have similar thoughts. Already have some version or another of everything in this kit but just have a strange primitive urge to buy that big box and unpack it anyway. Some how that big box stuffed full of goodies puts me back to six years old on Christmas morning. Sparkfun, just cover in Alf wrapping paper, slap a big foil bow on it, and see if you don’t get a few orders.

  • Oh my……why,…this would seem to be useful in a classroom!! But I want it for myself anyways!! ;-)
