E(Erasable) P(Programmable) R(Read) O(Only) M(Memory)

Ceramic Eprom memory chips are too cool to plunder for their gold substrate.

So I wrapped their little legs around aluminum tubes, lashed them together with wire and secured it all with a strong magnetic clasp.

Don't let your memory get lost, wear it on your wrist and proudly show it off to everyone!

My Etsy shop if you don't want to make it yourself:


Step 1: Tools and supplies


Eproms: they come in many different sizes, so you'll have to try them out to determine how many to use.

Hobby tubing: very small diameter, I used K&S 1/16" outer diameter aluminum.

Knitting needle: slightly larger diameter than the tubing.

28-30 gauge wire, just so it goes through the tubing and is easy to wrap around the IC legs.
