Description: The original Cylons are from TV’s Battlestar Galactica. They are humanoid robots with a scanning red visor where their eyes should be.
This is a tinyCylon because it’s, well, tiny and because it is based on Atmel’s ATtiny family of microcontrollers. My tinyCylon is a small, electronic device which simulates the red scanner. Add some chrome and you’re halfway there!
Where some people look at my little invention and see a Cylon, other people see KITT’s scanner from TV’s Knight Rider. I guess a lot depends on how old you were when these TV shows were first aired.
