Touch Timer

05 Dec 2018

A compact little project with a singular purpose - a timer that resets on touch.

It uses a Digispark Attiny85 with its built-in USB plug to sit plugged into your computer or any free port, then displays seconds counting up (looping back to 0 of course at 99:99:99 or whatever fits).

Fun features

  • Capacitive touch button is super sensitive (which is good in this case)
  • Hand-etched PCB, that I dyed for no logical reason
  • ABS smoothed case which.. didn’t turn out great but was a good lesson to learn
  • Custom font that looks rather fetching on this tiny OLED
