Hack a Day interviews Ian at the World Maker Faire

Posted on Friday, October 5th, 2012 in interviews by DP

Ian talks about the massive Nixie tube thing and the standard PCBs to Hack a Day.

The goal of our standard PCB format is to make it super simple to design a project that fits in a bunch of different cool, open source cases.

Grab our Eagle library or KiCAD board templates to use Sick of Beige PCB standard for your own projects.
