Here at hackaday, we often find ourselves wondering how we can use the vast technological abilities of our community to make the world a better place. We have finally decided to step up to the plate and make a difference. We are proud to introduce our very first kickstarter project.
Happy April fools day!
I’ll just go ahead and answer some questions here real quick.
Because I thought it would be funny, and hey, I’ll do anything for your attention!
- Did you actually stick that up your nose?
Yes. It is a simple party trick. You can actually fit a bunch of stuff up in there, but you probably shouldn’t.
- Why didn’t you make a tiny board and use smd components?
That was considerably more effort and time than I wanted to put into this gag. Also, I thought cramming something unnecessarily far into my skull added to the humor. There actually is an SMD version that lights up when you breathe.
There was actually an even crazier initial prototype that had a button and battery pack in my mouth with wires going through my throat and out my nose. However, when I fed the wires through (another stupid party trick), I found I couldn’t talk without triggering my gag reflex.
