Dr. Mark Brickley schools you on electronics with the use of a compact mint box. Whether you’re taking up a course or training related to electronics, or if you’re simply an electronics nut, you’ll find the Minty Geek ($25) to be both fun and educational. It came to fruition when Dr. Brickley brought his home-built “Electronics lab 101” kit into work and challenged his lab assistants to complete it in an afternoon. Of course, they didn’t have a fighting chance in conquering the mint box as they have had 0 training and the prototype model had no instructions along with it. Where the assistants failed, Dr. Brickly prevailed as it spawned the idea of sharing the Minty Geek with the world; educating one electronics noob at a time.
