We're out of beta and releasing on time...

The first few wooden shells, hot off the press as it were.

Perhaps this answers a few questions. And I think I want a larger time constant, so I'll be swapping 1uF dipped ceramic caps into the design.

LEDs + superglue + Plexiglas + properly placed paint = RGB edge-lit waveguide pop-culture. Total internal reflection is a nifty arts & crafts tool.

The 'on' photos were made under the same lighting as the first photo, but modern 'superbright' LEDs are, in a word, 'superbright' and they completely blew out the camera even in the face of a direct overhead halogen floodlight. Amazing what 30mA gets you these days.

Some black walnut, acrylic scrap, a font, and Camilla's scroll saw lurking provocatively in the background.

....also a shipment from my very favorite Chinese LED vendor (ie, the only one I've found that seems to do actual QA, unit testing, and binning)....

Courtesy eBay, mix one gross assorted hairsprings into the fun.

A 4v 40maH rechargable LiIon coin battery, matched 1 sq inch solar cell and diode preassembled to charge when illuminated. Hmm, a small, self-regenerating power supply for $1.50....

Now, what fun could I possibly have with these?
