    Hi everyone. Still a newbie here. I'm really liking all the info in the forum. This is my first attempt at a Cylon eye scanner. I'm planning on trying a programmable chip next to reduce components and double the led count.

    Nice to see that the scan speed is adjustable. You can have a Cylon running on steroids, or just chilled out with a joint!!! LOL :D

    EDIT: Please excuse my rudeness! I should have first said 'Welcome to the Forum' :D

    Hehe.... Yeah I can amp it up or just chill it out :) I've already designed the PCB's for the programmable chip one, waiting on the parts to arrive before i etch the circuit boards. Hopefully it will turn out nice.

    BTW, thanks for the welcome DBK!!

    Hi Zathros. Thanks for the link. That version is very nice, especially when three units are wired together. I'm still toying around with different versions. It should turn out nice once i get everything worked out.

    Please, post pictures, and a schematic, and parts list, if you don't mind sharing. I love to see the different way people come up with things. :)

    The Larson Scanner pictured above is a snap to put together, just finished mine and really pleased with it.
