D.I.Y. LED chaser circuit.


I did one of these back in 1991, when I was 17, except for mine was in a straight line instead of a circle.

Seems like a lot of hassle to just blink a few lights, but fun doing it!

Which reminds me, Jay - what happened to your Monthly Maker box?

Cancelled it last month, but was "one in advance" which they shipped out a few days ago.
Once it gets here, I'll see if they've fixed their site, and if so, have a go at last months again, too..

.. but until then, cba, if I'm honest. Rather bitter end to the whole thing.

Back in 1991 when I made the same circuit, there was no Arduino, we had to dabble in the dark-arts in order to blink our bulbz!

On the old circuitry front, got a little of fun out of a 3khz tone generator coupled with two batteries and a magnetic reed switch mounted to my mountain bike, halcyon days.

Happy coding!

What did it actually do? Was it just variable flashes/blinks?

I did electronics at school 35 years ago and most of it is long-forgotten. I remember the names of some components and what they do, but how you put them together to build bombs is now a blur
