How to burn 30€ without fire

April 4, 2007

It’s fairly easy, you’ll see.

Just buy a Hitachi HM55B digital compass module, set up your breadboard for it, test it to see it’s working. Then, a couple of weeks later, reassemble your circuit with the module turned 180º around and power it up. You get to see a little wisp of smoke coming out of it, as if an electronic spirit is abandoning its carcass.

I can be a really professional dumbass sometimes. Grrr!
