Magic Lamp -  No, its not Aladdin's lamp with a genie inside.  This magic lamp appears to be an ordinary frosted light bulb with a rather unusual characteristic.  Whenever your finger is touched across the base threads and center contact the lamp magically lights! Without wires! It is a most effective illusion if you don't make a big production, "Hey! Check out this magic lamp!", but instead casually remove the bulb from a package of new bulbs and pretend to not notice when it lights.  When your victim gasps and grabs the bulb for further investigation just explain away the flash as some sort of static electricity effect and act indifferent. __ Contact: Charles Wenzel of Wenzel Associates, Inc.

Magic Wand Conjuring Trick -  This simple conjuring trick is intended to provide some enjoyment for the beginner in electronics or conjuring, and should take only an hour or two to build.  The trick works as follows: a wand __ Designed by Andy Collison

MICRO-DIC - E -  The Micro_Dice is a simple introduction to the PIC microcontroller.  This schematic will produce a random number on the led display in a dice pattern.  It is simple to construct.  When constructing you can select either fast roll or slow roll option.   __

Modification of Lazer Tag equipment -  I added a "fast-fire" circuit to get around the annoying delay that prevents you from firing again immediately.  It used the target LED contact on the trigger switch to reset the pulse generator.  That way, normally when you fire the sound goes on for its normal duration (we banned any mod that would turn off the sound or always __ Designed by John DuBois

Multi-Throttle Control for PC Flight Sims -  Are you into PC flight simulators? Find the control your typical controllers give you just a bit less than satisfying? Take a step up: add this very simple multi-throttle controller and start flying with the big boys ...___ SiliconChip

Multi-User Jeopardy Game -  This project describes a "Fastest Finger First" system that is cheap to build, has high noise immunity, is reliable and is also extensible.  Note that whilst the schematic below may look complicated, its actually a very simple & cheap interlock based round a single 4013 dual d-type flip-flop and an output driver that is replicated for each positionin this example, 8 times.  The buzzer is also optional and can be omitted, along with all its associated components.  The few extra resistors & capacitors used for improving the noise immunity are very cheap but improve the reliability of the design greatly.  i.e.  it's a proper design rather than a hack! __ Designed by Nick de Smith

Old idea, new twist-Magic Lamp -  You have probably seen "magic lamp" circuits in which an ordinary incandescent bulb is lit by a match.  These circuits rely on a hidden temperature or light sensor and are not particularly interesting.  I decided to make a magic lamp,  __ Contact: Charles Wenzel of Wenzel Associates, Inc.

Original Two-wire Game Show Time -  Several Game Show timers included, scroll to find this one.  The game show timer determines which contestant presses their button first by lighting a lamp and ringing a bell and the slower  contestants are locked out.  The circuit is convenient in that only two wires are needed to interconnect the stations and the wires may all go back to the base unit or they may be "daisy-chained" between stations.  There is no electronic limit on the number of stations.  The circuit uses a 24 volt power source and 12 volt lamps when built as shown but the experienced experimenter may scale these voltages along with the zener voltages if desired.  If the SCR triggers when the power is applied or when the reset button is pressed, add a 0.1uF capacitor from anode to cathode.  (A sudden increase in voltage across some SCRs can trigger them, especially if the gate impedance is high.)  __ Contact: Charles Wenzel of Wenzel Associates, Inc.

Oscar: Electronic Noughts & Crosses Game -  Noughts and crosses may rate quite poorly amongst young gamers of today but in the late 1960s, a machine, more often called an electronic brain than a computer, playing noughts and crosses against a human opponent, was quite a sensation.___ SiliconChip

PIC Fun & Games -  Want to get in to microcontrollers? Here's an easy, low-cost way.___ SiliconChip

PIC10F200-based electronic dice -  This page describes a PIC10F200-based electronic dice.  The reason I made this was that I got a small corner left over when ordering a panel with a couple of other PCBs and thought I would rather use the corner for something fun than leave it unused, so I made a dice.  The PCB is quite small, __ Designed by Rickard Gunee

PIC16F84A discolight effect with bass beat control -  This is an early picture of my discolight effect.  Because of the AGC circuit theres no need for potentionmeters for sensitivity adjust.  I replaced them with trimmers.  Now the microphone is on the control electronics because theres no need to place it outside the box and the possible noises from the surroundings are reduced. __ Designed by Zsolt Bitter

PIC16F84-based video game systE - M -  This page describes a PIC16F84-based video game system I made and first published back in the beginning of 1998.  Now, beginning of 2007, nine years later I've updated the layout of the PCB and also updated the source code to also be able to run on a PIC16F628A as Microchip is phasing out the 16F84 and it will soon not be able to be bought. __ Designed by Rickard Gunee

PICs in Space -  The circuit diagram is shown to the right.  You can get a larger version or a PostScript version if you prefer.  The design is based around a Microchip PIC16F628A microcontroller.  At the time of writing, this device is available for less than one pound from (among others) Crownhill Associates.  All the work, including colour video and synchronisation signal generation, is done in the microcontroller, and so there are no other active components.  Purists who contend that the LED is an active component may replace it with a light bulb. __ Designed by mail at quinapalus dot com

Pine Racecar Victory Judge -  I have received countless emails asking for a circuit to tell the user which car won in a pine car (also called Pinewood Derby, Cub Car, Scout Car, etc.) race.  This simple circuit takes care of the guesswork, lighting the appropriate LED to indicate the winner. __ Designed by Aaron Cake
