With two buttons and an LED, the book explores six basic computer logic gates, including WIRE, NOT, OR, AND, XOR and a LATCH. The book uses light sensors to detect which page is open and change the operands accordingly.

Please take a moment to ask yourself honestly if you:

  • have a baby

  • are planning on having a baby

  • are interested in computer engineering

  • will be attending a baby shower in the next 1-6 months

  • have a friend that looks like they might have a baby

  • are planning to be interested in computer engineering

  • know a computer engineer that acts like a baby

  • skipped the first two days of CE150

  • are learning how to read

If you fall into any of these categories, then you should definitely get a few of these.

Great Babyshower Gift

This book is amazing, the new parents-to-be were pleasantly surprised with this

Quality Issue

For a product that has two buttons, having one of them not work properly, is not that great. I love the concept and how the whole thing is done, but the quality issue is souring the experience.

Cool book and top Customer Service

How often does one get to review a children's book that us nerdy folks find irresistible? Never. Until now. Being on the wrong side of the age divide, us old timers (555) did everything the hard way - 7400 series (the fancy people has them clever CMOS things but not us. TTL rules!) A septuagenarian colleague with a diffident approach to the 'book' waved it away mumbling 'analog, analog'... One day. Anyway, get the book. Due to some ordering shenanigans a very cheerful chap with the handle Chase came to do some fiscal gymnastics and made this customer very appreciative. Good people. Support the 'blinkenlichten' project.
Follow-up Review: Yes, CMOS uses TTL (flaming comments...sorry - some of us still can't comprehend anything beyond +5 rails) and now getting my grubby little mits on the Big Babies version, there are now Blinky Lights. It is still hard to explain the value of knowing the core of how the digital world works but this is a start. Thanks to Jay for such a cool gift - it is much appreciated. Back to the whiteboard!
