PCB lamp shade

without comments

How to turn a major cockup into something nice? The first batch of PCB’s for the feet of the soccer humanoid were flawed. I have used the wrong footprint (mind the pun) for the microcontroller (NXP LPC2148.. wonderful controller by the way). So eight PCB’s in a slight trapezoid form were rendered utterly useless… I stringed them together using tie-wraps, soldered an attachment base.. and voila.. My table is now lit with a permanent reminder ALWAYS to double-check the used footprints on a PCB
