Cryptocurrency has taught me to love math and at the same time be baffled by it.

Cryptocurrency lesson 0: Altcoins and Bitcoin are not the same thing.

Very nice!  I have always loved clear acrylic stuff.

Wish I had a local ewaste place like she does.



This is a super cool way to make a boring workshop area shine.
Wonder if there was any way to make it ESD-safe, Maybe embedding thin wires in the desktop, or soldering a single ground wire to all the pieces of PCB inside and then making it available to connect to might do it? I would worry about ESD with acrylic countertop, Could put an ESD mat on it, I suppose.

Nice!

Perhaps mixing some fine carbon dust into the topmost epoxy layer would make it conductive enough without obscuring the transparency too much.
