This project started from the failure of the last iteration of my Wee Noise Maker board. Since the Wee Noise Maker board is relatively big an complicated, I decided to pack the main components in a simpler design to speed up the prototyping time and lower the cost. Turns out that this smaller board is quite interesting in itself.
The first iteration of Noise Nugget was designed around a 2xAAA battery holder :
When I saw the announcement of The Return of the Square Inch Project competition I decided to make a new version that would fit the requirements (1x1 inch board).
