Onomatopoetic Electronics

Ribbit, Whoosh, Pop! What do all these words have in common? They are onomatopoetic. They sound like what they are. They tell you exactly what they mean, no dictionary necessary. We coin the term Onomatomimetic Electronics to refer to electronics whose shape or design evoke the function of the circuit. For example, our electret ear sound sensing circuit board or our Eye silkscreened cameras, or the lightbulb shaped lamp. We think onomatomimetic electronics are wonderful because they are accessible, and they encourage inquiry and learning. They're not just more opaque rounded rectangle shaped devices, whose inner workings are hidden in thousands of pages datasheets and patents. Onomatomimetic electronics are LUCID!
