From the MAKE Flickr photo pool

For InterAccess’ “555 Timer Night” at Open Studio, they made this 555 IC cake, inspired by EMS Labs’ circuitry snacks. Nice to have the data sheet handy so you know what you’re eating. Those 23 transistors, 2 diodes, and 16 resistors may look hidden inside that tiny DIP, but oh, the calories!
