    As each of my daughters reached age 10, I taught them soldering, wire stripping, shrinkie-dinks, plus and minus screwdrivers and the resistor color-code.

    I know the other version, but daughters, you know?

    Ooo! I actually have one of these things stuck on a wall, been hangin there for years with a dead battery. It’s a bit fancier though – has a remote control on/off button… now seeing this vid is givin me ideas, could do all sorts of remote “fun” with this thing!

    If you like this kind of thing, and are just taking your first steps into electronics. Take a look at the excellent book. Make: Electronics (Learning Through Discovery). You need a little extra change to get started buying tools and big bags of caps, and things like that. But, it’s an awesome place to get started from, and it’s written by a well-established contributor to Make and EE. Again, if you’re starting out, and want that hands on approach, he’s talking about in the video, give it a try. They also have a second book in the series geared towards more intermediate circuit fuckers.
