Designed to match the standard PCI form-factor, this is a stainless steel sheet metal box with card-edge connector; at the back where other connectors usually go there is stainless steel screen. Inside, 8 spring clips for small fireworks, and 8 small coils of nichrome wire to ignite the fuses. Each
