Protect and Support Info about service plan
Yes, it's ... Useless! Designed as featured over at Makezine.com. It's a clever electromechanical box that turns itself off after you've turned it on. This is now a full kit, complete with Solarbotics satisfaction warranty, but you will have to assemble it (requires some soldering), supplying your own soldering gear, batteries, and screwdriver.
