OK!  Warm up your soldering iron:

available from the Brookhaven National Lab engineer Justine Haupt
that built the first one.  Backstory here:

But it seems not to be a _complete_ kit.  There's a list of stuff
you need to supply on your own.  But, there does not seem to be

It sure would be a WOW! factor at the next cocktail party I go to.
But, WAIT!!!  I don't go to cocktail parties....
