    Buy the parts there with a solderless breadboard. It's very simple to make. They have great directions with decent quality pictures to go along with them. Mine works great.

    I built one last year, I got the schematic from the same website that has the 'diy bokeh' instructions. I'd recommend using an optocoupler rather than the led/optical slave.

    I dunno exactly, there's like 90 billion different paths I could take after graduating.

    Maybe the people with like a 2.0 work on repairing equipment. Hopefully I'll be in the crew developing new equip ;)
