Honestly, this site started as a joke. A weekend script tossed together to consolidate PCB orders from the Dangerous Prototypes team. It sat quietly and unnoticed until Hack a Day told the world. Turns out people like cheap, no-nonsence PCBs at near-China local prices and no-markup shipping. The original script, not even worthy of the word "store", ran for three years and handled tens of thousands of orders.
Over that time we've hacked together new interfaces to cool services in China, and cobbled them together into this store. It is highly experimental and many things are still a bit rough around the edges! Welcome, the PCBs are cheap and the 3D printing is amazing!
