Since it's Arduino day, here's a recent project where the Arduino came in very useful.
- Arcade button controller of some sort?
- Electric shock russian roulette version of the popular Simon memory game
- Some sort of video mux
- CBM serial port network?
- For testing cables?
- Quiz buzzer system?
- Bespoke Track and Field controller?
- Three-player controller for Flappy Bird!
- RGB pattern generator?
- MIDI? Is it a MIDI thing?
