    OK here it is:

    i give you a list of 10 components

    and who is the most creative of what can be done with them wins , and starts the game again

    do not include PIC chips tho, cos the creativity would be limitless.

    be random in the items in the list to make the project cooler

    any material which is not an electronic component can be used ( such as casing for the project , mirrors, dividers etc)

    I start :

    breadboard
    connector wires
    4 - 555 timers
    2 - decade counters ( 4017)
    leds ( as many as you want)
    buzzer
    3 - ir emitters
    3 - 0.01uf ceramic caps
    pot 1-40Ω
    an electrolytic capacitor ( the value you want)
    and resistors :)

    :rolleyes: you might have guessed , yes im bored.

    All those part...and no resistors! :eek: And one 40Ω pot? That's going to require real creativity. :D

    I would make a blinky light toy that has two circles of 10 LED's each, the first circle of LED's would be connected to the first 4017, and the second circle of LED's would be connected to the second 4017. I would use a 555, the potentiometer, and a capacitor as a variable clock source. This clock source would drive the first 4017 while the second 4017 would be driven by output(9) of the first 4017...so for every revolution of the first circle of LED's, the second circle of LED's would be incremented by 1.

    If you have enough breadboard space you could space the LED's out to resemble gears that have a 1:10 ratio so that when the LED's are moving it would give the impression of gears rotating.

    Anyways, have fun!
