Homemade Toy Patch Panel By Erik Utter

Video engineering consultant Erik Utter's 2-yo son turns out to love cables, plugs, and control panels as much as he does. So for Christmas, Utter whipped up this sweet toy patch panel on AutoCAD, had it cut and engraved by one of his fabricators, and then wired it up with basic, toddler-level functionality. The v2.0 upgrade is already in the works, but it is already awesome as-is.

I have wanted something like this for my daughter - twist this guy's arm to sell the schematics or sell the actual item on etsy.
