An adendum to hacking the Virgin Pedometer

So I note the post I had written about hacking the Virgin Health Miles pedometer using an Arduino gets hit quite a bit.

But it struck me, you don’t need a microprocessor to do this. All you need is some resistors, a capacitor or two and a 555 time chip.

Presto! It’ll pulse to your hearts content in the right configuration and kick the step count up!
