Pixel Pump - Open source hardware vacuum pickup tool for electronics/PCBs

Randomly stumbled upon the Pixel Pump, a pick & place assist tool for electronics. It seems to be well-received by Hackaday, and have successfully crowdfunded production on Crowdsupply here:

Glad to see more infrastructural components of hardware fabrication becoming open source!

Though maybe this is old news since I’m clearly super out-of-date, haha.

The SMD magazine would be immensely useful. My problem is with orientating parts after picking them up. This is true with regular tweezers also.
