Today's technology is so amazingly cheap and capable that easiest way to solve most technology problems is to use more of it.
The Ognite attempts to buck this trend by being the least it can be. Each part In The Ognite is the cheapest and simplest possible, and it uses the fewest of those parts possible. The entire kit fits neatly into a matchbox, and the matchbox packaging becomes the The Ognite's base and battery.
Less stuff means more work, and putting together the Ognite is hard. Hopefully your efforts will pay off in a unique handcrafted piece of technology.
I am also hoping that you will find ways to do it better and make it easier for those who come after you. I want any suggestions, comments, or criticisms you think of - on anything from spelling mistakes in the instructions to a better name for the project.
