555 Timer Contest

at 5:30 am. Filed under Educational, Electronic Hacks


Once you are finished entering the weekly Hacked Gadgets contest you will want to have a look at this one. Remember the contest we ran back in October last year? No matter if you were one of the people who figured out that it was a 555 timer or if you needed to work on it for a bit. Now is your change to put that chip to some good use and design something. There is a new contest aptly named the 555 Contest being put on by Chris Gammell and Jeri Ellsworth in which there are four categories to enter, art, complex/extreme minimalistic and utility. Have a look at who wrote comment number one in this blog entry. You got it, that is none other than the Forrest M. Mims III who I remember from the legendary Radio Shack Engineer’s Mini-Notebook line.
