New Product: Transistor Man T-Shirt in Mens 4XL!

Above: me, in my awesome photo studio wearing my awesome t-shirt.

We’re very happy to present our Transistor Man T-Shirt in a Mens 4XL size! Lots of people have asked for this shirt in a larger size, and we’re happy to oblige.

Did you know that inside every transistor is a little man whose job it is to watch the incoming base current and adjust the collector-emitter impedance to match the datasheet? Its true! And now you can celebrate the hard-working guy with this fabulous Transistor Man tee shirt.

The front of the shirt has the now legendary Transistor Man diagram from Horowitz & Hill’s “The Art of Electronics”. Not only did we get a blessing to make these from Cambridge Press, we even got a scan of the original artwork transparency from Professor Horowitz! These are without a doubt, the coolest NPN shirts we’ve ever seen.

The 4XL shirts are 100% cotton, so they’re super-comfy and very breathable!
