Arduino, the open source microcontroller known for its use in hardware hacking projects, released the low-cost Arudino Leonardo earlier this year. Since then, Andrew (bunnie) Huang visited System Electronica, the PCB factory which makes Arduino PCBs, and the results of his tour are simply awesome.

Starting with massive sheets of virgin copper and ending with completed boards ready to be stuffed, if you’ve ever wondered what small-scale modern manufacturing looks like, this is how it happens.

If you’re in the mood for geeking out, you’ll want to block out a bit of time to look through everything.
