(BBAC) Breadboard Arduino Compatible Micro-Controller

How simple can the source code for an object be? Could an image count, with printing as the fabrication process? The example shown above is a template that fits a standard solderless breadboard and indicates the locations into which to insert the electronic components that compose the device. It’s the Breadboard Arduino-Compatible kit from oomlout, a simple microcontroller setup. Although the template is simply an image on a piece of paper, the standardization of the necessary components makes the assembly process quick and straightforward. Together with an accessible method for procuring the parts, the template provides everything needed to produce the final device, making a compelling case for considering it as the source code for an physical object.
