Tiny Cylon LED Kit: Battlestar Galactica Gets Miniature

by Paul Strauss

This DIY electronic kit lets you live out your Battlestar Galactica fantasies in miniature. Dale Wheat’s tinyCylon circuit is a pint-sized version of the chasing red LEDs found in the helmets of everyone’s favorite Battlestar baddies.

The tinyCylon gets its tiny little brains from the programmable ATtiny13 controller chip, and loaded with more patterns than you can shake a stick at.

A simple press of the button lets you toggle between a bunch of mini light shows: classic Cylon bi-directional scan, left-to-right, right-to-left, glowing eyes, a couple of random modes, cyclops, and the oh-so-thrilling “off”.

You can grab the tinyCylon kit over at the MakerSHED for just $10. If you’d rather have one pre-assembled for you, just add $5 bucks. Me, I’d plunk down a couple hundred donuts and build my own mini desktop Cylon army.
