A design contest dedicated to the 555 timer! http://www.555contest.com/

I think James and I are going to put together an entry. Anyone else interested?

Lol, "MacFiver" all the way!

I am definitely interested. Now to think up some ideas. What would MacGiver do with a 555?

Got a couple of ideas, which may or may not be feasible. The first is using the bits in a 555 to do digital logic, and making an ALU or something. The second is a synth/sequencer.

I made one of those last year! (but his is a little more fancy)
