Fireflies based on tiny AVR

This circuit simulates fireflies with small microcontrollers. Here is the circuit and the component used for single fireflies

  1. ATtiny13 microcontroller
  2. Light Dependant Resistor (LDR)
  3. LED
  4. 2 resistors
To make it interesting, assembly it on the board for 25 fireflies. Every single firefly is self contained, there is no over-all controller. Here is the picture
