When it comes to electronics, it’s the free-form designed ones that always catch my eye. Seeing how all the wires and components are connected just make it so fascinating and nice to look at. I wanted to try building something in a similar style. Being aware my soldering skills are not as good as I’d like them to be, I decided to go for a bit easier but still kind of nice-looking option. The whole build was a process of trial and error that probably cost me a bit more time than I’d like to admit. It was also the first time I ever used a ATtiny (or anything besides an Arduino Uno), which posed many challenges. But I ended up learning a lot throughout the making, so hopefully you’ll do too!
