Rain has a crack at soldering surface mount components by hand. Very tricky!
"Hardware development methods are about a decade, possibly two behind software ones" — true! "Hardware development people don't communicate too well both at the human level and the engineering level" — harsh, but fair, but as Saar explained, this is mainly due to the lack of tools with mechanisms for interchange, version control and the equivalent of agile processes: www.boldport.com/blog/?p=348
A 555 Timer, a capacitor, a resistor to make an LED breath in and out. It's a bit squished after being in my rucksack. This project is documented on SolderPad.
A lovely binary clock installation from OmerK made using tupperware boxes and an Arduino^W PIC16.

another of Rain's wonderful wearable computing creations. Some of her smart observations, here: rainycatz.wordpress.com/2011/06/21/some-thoughts-on-sensi...
A conductive mesh, similar to that used on microwave oven doors the size of the perforations in the mesh are much less than the microwaves' wavelength, most of the microwave radiation cannot pass through the door, while visible light (with a much shorter wavelength) can.
Al's first attempt at using the hotplate for surface mounting, kept to show some of the pitfalls of using such very small components at home!
The software/hardware duality of XMOS platform means this single generic chip can process mouse, keyboard, USB, Network as well as driving a display all from a single chip. Amazing!

It was dark, so most of my shots were blurry, but this gives a sense of the excitement as David opened his suitcase of schwag!
