Fast and simple project that imitates candle light powered with attiny85 and CR2023

This project utilizes attiny85 as a candle. PCB is built from two single-sided copper boards. It flickers for about 15 minutes, and after that, it goes off. It can be lit again with a button for another 15 minutes, and the cycle repeats till the battery die. The idea comes from conventional candles mixed with electronics :) It still looks very realistic, it cannot burn out, and it powers off automatically. Additionally, I printed 3d enclosure, and add some baking paper as a light diffuser. The final result is pretty convincing.”
