Has going back to school got you stressed out? If so, check out how to make some DIY hallucinogenic goggles. Trippy!

This post will describe how to construct a pair of goggles which can be used to induce geometric visual hallucinations via strobe light patterns. This tutorial should be accessible to anyone familiar with Arduino hacking, and I do not go into details of the electronics design. The effects are quite remarkable, and enjoyed by many.

    I ran into these guys at a pub near Carnegie Mellon. It works way better than I ever would have expected. From the descriptions I’ve read of other LED-based goggles, I’m not sure if these operate on the same principle.

    He’s also been collecting and categorizing the effect of various strobe patterns. Really neat.
