Irreverent Electronics and Frivolous Circuits
We're building handy electronics for makers and engineers, and are working on some funny and irreverent gadgets and stupid desk toys that are certain to hook you into beginning programming and tinkering. Check us out on Tindie! We also have some STEM-related knitting accessories that we're selling under Alpenglow Yarn.

Our founder, Carrie Sundra, is a lifelong learner with a penchant for the ridiculous. She went to Harvey Mudd College, where she proudly scored a 19 on her first electrical engineering exam, and subsequently chose to pursue more mechanical and manufacturing courses. But shortly after starting her first job after college, some project funding got scrambled and they needed a body to solder and do some sensor research for a 6” micro air vehicle (and this was in 1999 folks, this stuff didn’t exist yet). Suddenly, faced with a super cool application and concrete “thing” to build and make work, electronics got a lot more interesting. Ever since, she’s designed custom PCBs and helped develop products for a variety of applications - from avionics for small UAVs that are now in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, to livestock thermometers, to waterproof power scrubbers, to her own yarn-winding and twisting devices.
Carrie lives in San Luis Obispo, a coastal California town conveniently located between San Francisco and Los Angeles, which is home to Cal Poly University and a burgeoning tech community. She climbs, snowboards, knits, makes stuff, helps promote the Softec Women in Tech group, and teaches soldering to anyone who wants to learn.
