I took 3rd place in the minimalist category of the 555 timer compo for my persistence of vision display. I’d also like to thank Allerta and CafeLogic for sponsoring the compo and the cool prizes (an iPulse watch and a box o displays).

I created this display for the 555 timer contest, a compact art piece that cries out in appreciation of the venerable 555 timer. It’s a persistence of vision display formed by 7 blue leds and 3 NE555 timers, which spells out 5 5 5 as it revolves.
