I spent several evenings last week trying to make an interval timer for shooting time lapse movies out of a Lego Mindstorms robotics kit. This involved several trips to Maplin and some soldering as well as learning to program in the weird drag and drop enviroment. I’d nearly finished when I came across a cheap interval timer on ebay. Didn’t cost much more than the parts I had bought at Maplin and is loads better. Ho hum… I had fun tinkering.
This is my first attempt with the ebay time. There is a great deal wrong with it but I think I know what to do next.
