I would like to thank hackaday.io and their sponsors  for the opportunity to enter the 2018 Hackaday Prize Open Hardware Design Challenge.

I would also like to thank the Arduino.cc community for providing the IDE software tools, along with Arduino C++ with its reference, and example programs with documentation, as well as the software and documentation to turn an UNO into an ArduinoISP programmer for programming an ATMega 328P, as well as the ATtiny 44, 84, 45, and 85 etc., so those chips can be programmed to do wonderful things, and not just be tied to a shield.

I would also like to thank SparkFun.com for putting together kits and example programs around their Red board with supporting documentation and tutorials on their web site, as well as providing links to the ATMega 328P, almost 500 page manual.

I am also thankful that a whole lot of information and documentation is readily available for download from the internet, from the manufacturer, the supplier, sparkfun.com, and also wikipedia.com, for having information on electronic chips. I usually need three sources to get the whole picture, as I get some of the information from one and clarification from others.
