Here is cool looking blue smoke monster “skill badge” from Adafruit. If you’ve ever had an IC go “poof”, this is the badge for you.

For the uninitiated, blue smoke refers to the puff of smoke made when some electronics parts fail and explode.

The skill badges you can pick up in our store (and soon earn for free) are great ways to share and show your skill set, but we’re also going to celebrate some of the mistakes we all make with electronics :) Say hi to the magic blue smoke monster. This badge is available starting today.

Via Adafruit.

    I remember my father teaching me to “Watch not to let the magic genie out of some components, if he escapes, it will never work again.” Haha, I think I was like 6 when he told me that.

    AKA The smoke test. I think I have let out every color of smoke possible. Even the dreaded “black” smoke. I think yellow was the most fun!
