Nothing says happiness quite like a fresh supply of electronic components
This weekend I plan to make a new light toy for Tyler. The current one he has is a simple circuit housed in one of those acorn-size plastic containers you get out of 25¢ bubblegum machines. Its sole job is to to serve as a light detector and slowly power on a bright led.
The new one I want to make him will do that, but will also include some button functionality that will trigger multicolored led light shows and perhaps a recordable voice chip. It’ll all fit in a slightly larger clear plastic container the size of a small plum.
So it’ll be that and the Superbowl this weekend that’s going to occupy my time. Seeing as how my Chargers didn’t even manage to make the playoffs (again) this year, I’m going to have to root for the California team. Who wants to bet against me? I’ve got a quarter says the 49ers take the win!
Yeah, I’m not a big gambler. A quarter is all you’re gonna get outta me. Heh…
Have a great weekend!
