Help us name the Circuit Playground friends! We have a few names picked out (555 times is Hans for sure) but we’re looking for more ideas 🙂 These little components are all part of the Circuit Playground, a place anyone can visit and learn about electronics. Here are some of the names we’re considering.

(Red LED named in honor of Blinky,the red Pac-Man ghost) 🙂
Blue LED: Bluto?
Red LED: Ruby?
Red: Tyfi (like rectify) or Tifi (like Tifani) or Red-it
Blue: Beamer (or Beemer if you want to dance with infringement)
Resistor: Aubrac (WWII resistance leader; has that TRIAC type technical feel to it) or Goldie
Capacitor: Polar or Izzy (polarized)
Capacitor: Steve(Closest thing to static I could think of)
Resistor: Che (as in Che Guevera, or really any other well known resistance leader :P)
LED’s: Rinky, Blinky and Gled
Capacitor: Cap’n Patch
Transistor: Kay Tron
Capacitor : Electra-Cutie
most of those are good
but how about Becky for the transistor
BEC for base emitter and collector
I think a nod to old computing is in fitting for the leds
Capacitor: Puff (we actually named our dog Picofarad and call him Puff for short)
Transistor: Iota (from your post last year about how the transistor got it’s name)
The obvious name for an inductor (if you had one) would be Henry.
I second Hans and Mho ideas, I like those. Also the suggestion for Blinky/Winky/Dinky are good too!
transistor – Nip
Capacitor – Conde’ (old school .. condenser)
Transistor – Sis (short for tran ‘sis’ tor)
Red LED – Rosso (Italian for ‘red’)
Green LED – Verde (Italian for ‘green’)
Blue LED – Sky ( … the sky is ‘blue’)
Resistor – Bandi
