A few of my co-workers and I are building a machine that will really help the open source community. We are building the first fully functioning prototype right now, but we need money to finish it. Instead of going straight to Kickstarter (or asking for donations) we decided to start selling components in a web store to fund our prototype. Once we finish the prototype we will go to Kickstarter and (with funding) our machine will change the way the engineering process works.
So if you would like to order some resistors, we ask that you order through us! http://oiduts.net
EDIT: Right now we are only selling to US customers
