  2. Isnt this essesntially what the new Macs running PhotoBooth use? When you snap a pic in that app, the screen goes white for a split second thereby illuminating the subject. Pretty smart me thinks.

  3. What the heck does strong typing vs. weak typing have to do with whether or not you can make your screen flash?
