Didn't we say something about making your MAKERbuino unique?

Everyone loves buttons! The beautiful, shiny buttons. The jolly, candy-like buttons. How long can you hold out?  Don't worry about it, you don't have to! Is 40+ enough? 

Plus! We like robots, you probably like robots too. We wanted you to have a custom Makey robot laser cut wooden game cover and CircuitMess fired them up! We've included a "limited edition" alternate cover just for you!
