Patrick made a very cool “problem light”…

So, I’d decided a while back to build a problem light, after being inspired by someone else’s genius. Think of a smoke alarm…but more general. So, as I began plotting my own problem light, in the Venture Bros style, my friend told me she was redoing her living room steampunk-style. I began to wonder, how do you do a late 1800s LED…and I ran to scribble a drawing. This was wrought from that. It may be the finest physical thing I have ever created.

    Awesome! I really dig this. I would like to blatantly steal your idea and make an “ON AIR” indicator for my ham set. Very cool man.

    I didn’t really make sense until I read the links in the original text.
