Making toys cooler through electronics.

Now I don’t know a whole lot about electronics but this guy seems to be talking in terms that someone who had a basic knowledge of electronics and circuits could actually understand and be able to make something with this video. Well that’s not me and it’s likely not you either, bu[...]
