Picture of How to make a random number generator
This is a random number generator that I created in school last year, I'm putting on instructables to people can share and learn on how I made my project. I will describe to the best I can, as my note was mostly trial and error to get the project working but in the end I got it to work.

Step 1: Components

To make this project you will need:

1 Genie C08 chip 
2 4026b chips
8 0k resistors
2 10k resistors
1 Genie download wire
2 single LED displays
1 push to make switch
1 spst switch
1 3 AA battery holder

So we've had the "cyber scientists" on the job (again), and we have determined that this is not a "true" random number generator. Lets face it, the instructables site is really intended for the home hobbyist, and the cost of a radio active monitor computer interface (such as the Aware RM80) runs in the hundreds of dollars price bracket... unjustifiable for most. Keep it real... this is a great project. Thanks to the author for submitting it, and I'm sure those really interested for the purposes of learning and fun will enjoy. :)

Take care although random enough for most purposes the microprocessor isn't really producing truly random numbers just a long pattern.

I don't know how it randomly pick numbers it was just a flow chart option I could chose but from when you get the number they are pretty as my teacher tested it on the lotto we dint win though lol

in step 1 you say that i need eight "0 K resistors"? is this a typo?

No you can just use plain wires but I used 0K resistors because it look much neater and more professional that flying wires.
No they are used as links on the PCB you may as well use wire.
ah. i see.

to be truly random a radio active source with a counter can be used. Radioactive decay is one of few things that are truly random.
