Adafuit has a new product, a “magic smoke” badge for those of us who have fried a component — so basically, anyone who has tinkered with electronics.

Sometimes you need celebrate mistakes. Adafruit offers a fun and exciting “badges” of achievement for electronics, science and engineering. We believe everyone should be able to be rewarded for learning a useful skill, a badge is just one of the many ways to show and share.

This is the “I learned something, the magic blue smoke monster showed me” badge for use at classrooms, workshops, Maker Faires, TechShops and around the world to reward beginners on their skill building journey!
