What others say about us

What a wonderful product your Ringo phone is! My son was desperate to build his own phone and we completed the build recently after a few days working on it.

— Julia

I really appreciate the attention to detail that CircuitMess gives their projects, and highly recommend them if you are interested in learning more about electronics.

— Jackie

Flawless experience ! I'm a complete newb (a female history teacher in her 30s) and I ordered Ringo and Spencer. It was great fun, I learned to solder and a bit of coding.
