Today I cracked open a busted Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Boy circa 2010 to give a glance at the internals and I noticed that a piece of the PCB had "Listen to Cookie Galore" printed on it and it reminded me of the "Hidden Mickey" located on the PCB for Mickey's Mousecapade and that the PCB for the Teenage Engineering OP-1 is a loose map of Manhattan. Anybody else ever found or know of any other PCB easter eggs in anything? I love shit like this.

The Switch pro controller has a little PCB message saying THX2 ALLGAMEFANS! visible just above the right analog stick (through the ring of clear plastic), with a flashlight and the right angle. Really hard to take a picture of it though...

ooh I'll check my synths when I get them back from repair.  But I think they're just kinda standard "PCB messages".  Which is pretty common.

 

As opposed to the four Jace-xamples, which are much more egg-y.

Oh crazy! It took me a second to see the first one. M.C. looks like a dirt bike racer in that rendering.
