I created a circuit that zooms a camcorder in and out. This is the path I took.

Teach your baby to be a hip hop producer early. This is a MIDI drum kit that I made using a microcontroller and another $2 find at Savers.
I tried to make a time machine using an AVR Tiny13 and a peanut butter jar. Okay, so maybe it’s not really a time machine, but it’s definitely a kind of trippy time-manipulator ala Doc Edgerton’s stroboscope experiments. Either way, it works and it’s pretty cool.
