Here's a clever gadget that generates random entropy using some old school technology coupled with an AVR [via an Arduino board]

I was looking to give some entropy away. I seem to keep collecting it.

"We trained hard... but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into a team, we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing. And a wonderful method it can be of creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency and demoralization." Petronius Arbiter, approx. 2000 years ago.

Cool! Now they need an endpoint detector so the entropy generator can be flipped... errr, restarted.

glitch:
I like it.
Very simple and handy random number generator.
