Neven Boyanov has launched a new Tinusaur campaign on IndieGoGo:
The Tinusaur is powered by the Atmel ATtiny85 microcontroller.
We want to bring the cost down to $3 for the basic “lite” boards
and allow more people to be able to get them.
DanR has shared this motion sensing night light board:
This light is powered by an ATtiny45/85 which powers on the 14 LED lights when motion is sensed and it is in a dark room. The light sensor on the board will not allow the lights to come on if it is in a reasonably lit room.
It is fitted with a barrel plug for power, this model specifically with an L7805CV voltage regulator.
Yay, another mini-project with the ATtiny10! A while ago I devised a scheme to drive an electronic dice with only two IO lines. I finally found the time and motivation to build up a small design using this as an entry for the hackaday 1k compo

jonmash designed this simple board with two ATTiny processors powered by a micro USB connector.
Micro USB power input to two ATTiny MCU’s. There are two different ATTinys on this board. An ATTiny84 and an ATTiny85. These MCUs are great because they can be used with no additional components. In fact, on this board, the only additional components are some filter capacitors for the power rail and a header for the programmer interface.
I have exposed an array of copper pads for every pin. This makes it easy to add LEDs or to wire to just about any sensor.
jonmash has shared the board on OSH Park:
Jakub Polonský created this solution to make breadboard prototyping safer for components:
adjustable and programmable electronic fuse especially designed for breadboards – a breadboard fuse, or BFuse
The trip current can be set from 50 mA to 1 A but it can measure current up to 6 A [..] It has reverse polarity protection (by P-FET), transient voltage suppressors both on its input and output and two LEDs for indication
Set current and actual current can be compared using ATTiny’s built-in comparator or sampled by the ATTiny’s ADC. Then, the microprocessor controls a P-FET switch that opens or closes the power supply
