Electrical engineer Star Simpson has introduced a set of new DIY projects that pay tribute to Forrest M. Mims III, author of the classic electronics DIY Radio Shack books, like Getting Started in Electronics.
The three projects feature PCBs, printed with Mims’ original circuit illustrations, and the parts to build the circuits. One of the circuits featured, above, is Mim’s Stepped-Tone Generator, a synth circuit that has gained a life of its own, as the Atari Punk Console.
Here’s a video intro to the projects:
The project is being crowd-funded and the Stepped-Tone Generator is available to project backers for US $44.
