Thanks! There seems to be enough interest to convince me to sell these, yeah. I'll need to make some more though, that that'll take a little time. (Juggling several projects along with a full-time job).
If you're indeed interested, bookmark this site: www.stupidfingers.com All of my projects will be displayed there, along with DIY info and whether or not they're available for purchase.
It looks like I'll definately be offering them relatively soon, and yes, I plan to submit stuff to Instructables/Make. :) If you're interested in my projects, please keep an eye out here: www.stupidfingers.com There's nothing there yet, but will be within a few days at most.
The wire could technically be as thick or thin as you need it. It connects to the "eyes", which are just huge solder pads. But yeah, it works as a necklace too. Just haven't made any yet. Will have to find a slightly more flexible wire though. The stuff I'm using right now would look really goofy as a necklace, because of it's stiffness.
Yeah, I hear ya. I would have rather used something flat and more "strap-like" like the ide/floppy cabling you're talking about, but then it'd be difficult to come up with some kind of clasping mechanism. AV/stereo plugs are probably going to be the easiest. And yes, I agree; it would look great as a necklace. And I'll probably make those too. Just need to use a different type of wire. Something a little bit more flexible.
You might want to check the solder formulation before you sell any - even lead-free solders (which I hope you used) have Antimony or other hazardous metals. Sweat from under the PCB could dissolve or react with some of these metals and they're not the kind of thing you want to have on your hands or arms all day.
That's a fantastic question, and one I've been looking into. Experimenting with a few different methods of sealing them so there's no direct metal-on-skin contact. (There really isn't any as it stands now, but better safe than... poisoned. I hear ya).
i dont know if you're are still interested in selling these since this was like 3 yrs ago and i dont see anymore posts... I really want one for my boyfriend. I tried going to stupidfingers.com but it says the site is down. If you could email me asap I'd really appreciate it. firstname.lastname@example.org
