Did anyone else catch this one?

http://www.designnews.com/article/4..._158_PIC_Chip_Boosts_Four_Rockets_Skyward.php

A PIC microcontroller and 4 MOSFETS used to fire 4 independent 1/2A powered "warheads" during the flight of an E-powered booster rocket. Looks like a fun project for anyone who likes to play with electronics, and fairly cheap to build.

Complete build instructions and source code for the controller program available here:

This same website has posted a few other rocketry-related projects in the last year or so. Look through the archives for them...
