As Valentines day is fast approaching, many are thinking of a wonderful present to their love ones. Tom built this heart-shaped LED chaser and wrote a post on his blog detailing it’s assembly:

The object of your desire will not be able to resist a heart-shaped LED chaser, lovingly hand-crafted on perfboard with a CD4017B decade counter and 555 astable. But you probably can’t go wrong with flowers and chocolates as well. Just to be on the safe side.

Check out the video after the break.

    Fortunately she doesn’t read my blog, it’s supposed to be a surprise. <3

  2. I fixed the dodgy LED by the way! The connections were fine, but perhaps I overheated the LED while soldering it in.
