Cache Light - The Geocaching Beacon for The Night
The Cache Light is an ATTiny based device available as an easy to complete kit. It is suitable for a beginner with some soldering skills. All the parts other then the battery are included. The ATTiny is preprogrammed and ready to go. The printed circuit board uses plate through holes for simple assembly.
Simply put, its a LED beacon that flashes in darkness in response to torch light. The Cache Light can be placed pretty much anywhere so long as light can get to it and it will be visible for at least 25 meters in clear air. Power is provided by a 2032 button battery using the socket on the board or your battery of choice with some addition wiring.
Addiction to travel in odd places that others might go. I like leaving a light trace Geocaching and I brought something similar as a kickstarter project a few years back. I felt that I could improve on the original design and add some extra functionality while reducing the power requirement and the form factor to make it easier to carry and hide.
Ease of use and simplicity to set up. There are a number of operating modes to conserve battery life and reduce the "can't find it" factor. The modes are set by old fashioned shunts on the board. Power is also connected using a shunt. A test flash pattern aids in optimal placement.
