How funl is this: A migrating mystery box o’ electronics junk that may show up on YOUR doorstep. EMS Labs explains how it works:

The Great Internet Migratory Box Of Electronics Junk is a progressive lending library of electronic components. An internet meme in physical form halfway between P2P zip-archive sharing and a flea market. It arrives full of wonderful (and possibly useless) components, but you will surely find some treasures to keep. You will be inspired look through your own piles, such as they are, and find more mysterious components that clearly need to be donated to the box before it is passed on again.

  1. It’s only a matter of time until someone thinks that this box full of electronics components is some kind of mail bomb. :-)

  2. I’m such a pack-rat, I have like 15 of these boxes in my garage right now looking for a good home. Perhaps the Make: readers should organize a virtual yard sale.

  3. I think this is great! I’m always hoarding junk that I know is useful, I just can’t think how!

    I also think this is a great way to start up collaboration on projects.

    Project needs a specific part? buy bulk online to save postage, add it to the box you send to your project buddies!
