    It must be an Easy Button. It says “That was easy”

  2. Jesse Says:

    Haha, far too easy.

  3. Kozz Says:

    I don’t typically open these sorts of things. Now I know (generally) what kind of thing this is, but I don’t know which specific one. Off to google images!

  4. nate Says:

    it’s the first picture if you know what to Google

  5. Kozz Says:

    That’s the trick, too, isn’t it? Knowing what to google? 😉 And I’ve never owned this, or anything like this, either, so it doesn’t help at all. Drat it, after a bunch of searching, I’ve come up dry. Maybe I wasn’t in the neighborhood like I thought I was…

    o me and my title bro love these thing hint I’m 15 he’s 10

  7. SH Says:

    Why would anyone put those I/O-pins randomly in the board? Looks ugly and it’s quite a pain to hack, I quess 🙂

  8. Shadyman Says:

    @SH: Typically, they’re for testing. Finished boards are put on a bed of matching pins, and power is fed to it, and signals are tested/checked.

  11. NatureTM Says:

    That’s a flux capacitor breakout board.

  12. kozz Says:

    pls what’s that?

  13. Mike Says:

    You have to know what to Google, but you can see the logo in one of the redacted portions. Too bad I already have a good loupe. 😉

    To those struggling: read the microswitches. What has those?

  14. Ken Says:

    Two words… Google Goggles

  15. elaine Says:

    this is a green control board – it makes something work.

  16. Jonathan Says:

    What gave it away for me was the particular font and nomenclature for the “Side”s of the board on the silk. Having figured out the vendor and thus the line of business, it was a short step to guess the model and confirm it via Google Images board photos.

    Winner announced.
