Adafruit Holiday Gift Guide 2014: Clothing and Accessories for Engineers and Geeks

Transistor Man Shirt: 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 Hill! These are without a doubt, the coolest NPN shirts we’ve ever seen.

These shirts are directly printed onto high quality American Apparel T’s. The women’s are 100% cotton, the men’s sizes are a 50/50 poly-cotton blend. We find these shirts to be a little more expensive than the common ‘Hanes’ T’s but they’re much more comfortable and better fitting — especially the women’s sizes! All shirts are black with white ink. Please check the links above to American Apparel for detailed fitting information.

Silver Bipolar Earrings – NPN / PNP: Perhaps we are a little BIASED, but we think that these silver earrings are the perfect mix of pretty and geeky. Made of quality sterling silver (not cheap BASE metal!), one drop has an NPN symbol stamped on it, the other a PNP. These are definitely not your COMMON electronics-themed jewelry. Simple and classic, they go with all the CURRENT fashion. When donning these, you will certainly GAIN a look of elegance!

Lovingly made by Nicholas & Felice in Philomath, Oregon. You can see their other items on Etsy.

Circuit board necktie “Resistor” – Black with silver ink, narrow: Resistor. Super detailed resistors and capacitors oh my! How can you resist? Impress any nerdy guy or girl: computer scientist, programmer, electrician, engineer or maker. Is dad, grandpa, boyfriend or husband a tinkerer with solder and blinky things? Perfect for groomsmen and brides boys of the geeky persuasion. Nerd power!

Circuit board necktie “Resistor” – Black with silver ink, narrow. 100% Polyester microfiber necktie.

We’re excited to print a limited run of ties printed from vintage circuit board patterns. This is the 7th in the series from Bethany “Toybreaker” Shorb, CEO of Cyberoptix, no circuit bored here. (ha!). We have covered Behtany’s amazing work on Adafruit for years, so we wanted to start carrying her designs. They go perfect with the iCufflinks!

This print extends very high up on the tie, approx. 18″ (46 cm) from the bottom point; perfect to be seen from under a vest or jacket.

It appears these were for appliance controls (particularly ovens and cook-tops) in the late-80’s. When fabricating actual circuit boards, silkscreens are used to print etch-resistant inks on to the board to protect the copper foil. Subsequent etching removes the unwanted copper and one is left with the desired copper pattern for conductivity.

LIMITED EDITION! As is the nature of vintage screens, once these screens die, that’s it.
