The Ware for March 2017 is shown below.
I honestly have no idea what this one is from or what it’s for — found it in a junk pile in China. But I was amused by the comically huge QFP, so I snapped a shot of it.
Sorry this is a little late — been ridiculously busy prepping for the launch of a line of new products for Chibitronics, going beta (hopefully) next month.
The Ware for February 2017 is a Data Harvest EcoLog.
A number of people guessed it was a datalogger of some type, but didn’t quite identify the manufacturer or model correctly. That being said, I found Josh Myer’s response an interesting read, so I’ll give the prize to him. Congrats, email me for your prize!

The Ware for January 2017 is a Philips Norelco shaver, which recently died so I thought I’d take it apart and see what’s inside. It’s pretty similar to the previous generation shaver I was using. Hard to pick a winner — Jimmyjo got the thread on the right track, Adrian got the reference to the prior blog post…from 8 years ago. I think I’ll run with with Jimmyjo as the winner though, since it looks from the time stamps he was the first to push the thread into the general category of electric shaver. Congrats, email me to claim your prize (again)!

This close-up view shows about a third of the circuit board. If it turns out to be too difficult to guess from the clues shown here, I’ll update this post with a full-board photo; but I have a feeling long-time players of Name that Ware might have too easy a time with this one.
The ware for December 2016 is a diaper making machine. The same machine can be configured for making sanitary napkins or diapers by swapping out the die cut rollers and base material; in fact, the line next to the one pictured was producing sanitary napkins at the time this photo was taken. Congrats to Stuart for the first correct guess, email me for your prize!
