Here is an electronics lab stored in an Altoids tin. It includes a breadboard, several ICs, and multiple other discreet components all containable in the tin.

Altoids? Will it treat hemorrhoids? lol

No, Seriously, what does the electronics kit do? What can you make with it? Can you mount it on a drone?

I'm sure you've heard of the Altoids mints. Once the can is empty, it's a tin waiting for another purpose, or just to be tossed away.

Various types of multi-purpose circuits can be formulated from this kit. Perhaps a small RF generator, an oscillator, or something needing digital representation with LEDs, etc.

Check out the other photos in the Flickr link to see the kit applied.

I like the repousse workshop a metal artist I know did a while ago starting with an Altoids tin.

A little CW transceiver would be fun. String a wire to a tree out camping and talk to someone in Germany on 40 meters...
