Mara had designed a PCB for a project and Bill had the brilliant idea to use it to propose.
This is her first time getting a circuit board professionally fabricated, so I helped her prepare the design to be sent off to Laen’s DorkbotPDX service. That’s when I had the eureka moment. I don’t know of anyone else who had proposed on a circuit board in the past! She would never see it coming. As soon as the email to Laen was sent with the design files I quickly sent him another email asking for a favor; could he add a message to the boards for me? He agreed.
You can see in the pictures following the circuit boards with the question in the silk screen. Laen also threw in a ‘gold PCB ring’ as well. I didn’t think Eagle had ring size conversions for drill holes!
This is a very clever way to propose and it is always nice to see makers help each other to make special things happen.
