And you thought stamp collecting was geeky! I love this idea. These are cheap coin-collecting albums. What a fabulous teaching aid and way of organizing components so that students of electronics can see the parts families, different varieties of components, different package types, etc. The background labels are even color-coded so that component types are easy to see at a glance (blue=ICs, tan=diodes, green=crystals, etc.).
This was sent to us by its creator, Anurag Chugh, of LARE (Laboratory for Applied Research in Electronics), in Mumbai, India. Thanks, Anurag!
