Eye Clops magnifier with ‘printed’ circuit board

Eye clops

In an hilarious attempt to make things look more complicated than they actually are, the makers of the Eye Clops–an analog video magnifier device–have included two ‘printed’ circuit boards in their product: one is an actual, functional board; the other is a printed sticker with an image of circuitry.

The toy itself is quite cool, but I can’t help laughing when I imagine the development meeting where someone proposed adding fake circuitry. And interestingly enough it’s difficult to notice. I didn’t figure it out until a friend took the outer casing off.
