Robots......

I always liked them,and I don't mean those modern,humanoid ones.No,the tinplate ones from the 1940's until the 1960's are the real thing for me.For example this one,a Japanese robot from the 1940's.
So,inspired by these vintage treasures I've started to build some.Mine will have some kind of simple electronic circuit in them,a LED flasher or dark detector with cds cell.

Catching up

In the couple of weeks I've been working on some little projects that are a bit different from what I usually do.I made some earrings and prayer beads.
But,of course,I haven't left the electronics path altogether.I'm now working on a LED chaser circuit with a 74HCT14 chip instead of the usual 555 timer.
