The 555 contest was conceived by Jeri Ellsworth and Chris Gammell in a conversation on Twitter, and now it’s going to happen.

This contest came about in mid-January 2011 on Twitter. Jeri began talking about 555 timers and excitement built up enough to start doing something about it! The organizers of the contest have no monetary interest, only interest in seeing new designs and creativity blossom. Vendors/sponsors did not prompt this contest, though they are helping organize and providing prizes. Really we’re just looking to have fun and see new designs, so be sure to submit yours!

Categories include art, complex/extreme, minimalistic, utility, and best in show. Can’t wait to see the cool entries!

    The twitter conversation started between Jeri and Paul Clark (@monpjc). I jumped in a little later and ran with it. Amazing what can happen if you just run with ideas.

    …and coincidentally I was building a circuit using 555s that same week! I already have a project done to submit!

    The electronics community on the net is awesome. :)
