    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    environmentally friendly (does not need batteries, as it is solar powered)

    brings luck ;)

    is a good entrance point for starting to pimp your gadgets...

    Cons:

    could use NdFeB magnets for motor and would be better with a larger main capacitor...

    OtherThoughts:

    i have pimped mine to get around the cons be simply adding two NdFeB magnets (each 5x5x1 mm^3) and for now by adding a 1000uF cap in parallel to the solar cell. i will try replacing the latter with a supercapacitator with about 1F to get ultra long runtime ;)

    Bottomline:

    great product, uses screws to keep things in place - great hackability
