    Translucent case with RGB LEDs inside

    How about completely transparent? That way you can visually check the fuse without taking it apart. Also, because I like seeing the insides of things.

    I’d say a lot of the price goes into the ATMega328P. But yes, a bit out of my price range too.

    Make a wide range of color schemes and allow us to choose which one on checkout? Make the MM’s in-house and allow us to design the color scheme?

    Yenka (used to be Crocodile Clips) - free for home use on one PC (with time restriction between 8:30 and 3:30 Mon-Fri), not free for every other use. If memory serves correctly, resistors do fry. The downside to this program is the lack of components. You can simulate PIC and PICAXE with flowcharts. But you won’t find any ROM nor RAM. I’ve used it to figure out why most of my circuit designs didn’t work correctly.

    Should already be put together. If you were to open the page for a kit - like the simon says through-hole kit - you will see a small picture of a soldering iron (okay, it’s a drawn pic instead of a camera pic). If you click it, you’ll see what you’ll end up doing:

    Rookie - The number of pins increases, and you will have to determine polarity of components and some of the components might be a bit trickier or close together. You might need solder wick or flux.

    This pic does not show on this page, so it’s safe to say no extra work is required.

    Ordered two Sunday. Received them today (Friday). One board was a MPR121 Capacitive Touch Sensor breakout. Visually, it seems fine. Checking with my DMM, I read ~6.5 ohms resistance between the 3.3V pad and the GND pad (shorted cap, it looks like). My board says “V13” on it where the newest ones has a date.

    The second is a Nine Degrees of Freedom board. Visually, it looks like it was almost cut in two. Probing around on my DMM only revealed one broken trace. Not bad; just add wire and solder. I might make the MPR121 a college project for troubleshooting.

    Also note that when looking from the front of the display with the headers at the top, pin one, as described here, is to the far right.
