This is such a cool project... I'm very interested in the Norobo implementation as I've been a little lost with it's use since I got hte DroneCell, so a big thankyou from me for posting this up!

Very interested in the circuit, however, I am wanting to use it to measure fuel flow rate in a vehicle.  I have been unable to find a suitable, economical 12v flow meter, GAH.  Any tips anyone?

Bloody bikes with flashing lights. I don't see any exception to this. Hmm.

I also had someone with a green light on the front of their bike last year who seemed to think it was fine just becuase he purchased it in a shop...

Anyway, nobody really cares that much. I would rather people have funny lights and ride on the road than no lights and ride down the pavement.

Definitely... to both statements smiley

I have come close to speeding along there on a unicycle. When I get a larger one soon (hopefully) then I would have thought that I might be a speeding unicycle too!  Grin

Now this we have to see... see if you can taunt a police car into chasing you and get it video'd.  Stuff of legends in the making!   ;D

It's the same regardless.   If it goes on a road going "vehicle" it has to conform.  I was once pulled by the police for doing 43 in a 30 on my bike.  Boring I know... but hey, least on a push bike you can plead ignorance smiley-grin

But this is a VERY cool application for LED lighting... might be quite nice inside the car for internal lighting.  Next up... mood lighting compared to music beat smiley-razz

In the UK you can have any colour anywhere as long as it is not a white facing backwards or a red facing forwards. Basically there are no laws saying you can't so you can!)

Not true.

The Road Vehicle Licensing Regulations are quite stringent, not least to include uniformity (for example placement of lighting has to be equal on either side with the exception of fog and reversing lights....

These only cover vehicles that are on the public highway though, so at a show, etc.  You can do as you please.

It get a bit more difficult with LEDS, but I checked with my local traffic unit, and basically clusters of LED's are categorised as being one light unit. Hope that helps smiley-grin

Cool smiley-razz

Might come in handy for a project I have in mind, thanking you kindly smiley

the E36 cluster is a nice unit smiley

CooL

I'm retro-fitting Peugeot 407 clocks into a Mk2 Scirocco... this will be a BIG help, thankyou!

Although I'm not quite sure why you didn't just use clocks with a rev counter on them?

If you're in the UK, gimme a shout... I have a set of Golf Mk1 clocks (with rev counter) that you can have.

Received my Picoduino kits today... faster shipping than some UK based companies selling their wares via ebay.

Now how do I phrase their feedback... ?

Picoduinoe, you get what it says you get, and fabulous in terms of shipping!!  Just gotta find the time to solder them together (which shouldn't be too difficult as I'll be having 3 weeks paternity VERY soon!)

Just to chip in... Jason from The Makerspace has confirmed that he will ship international, just not via the googleshop on the site.

For shipping quotes, just hit the contact button with your details and destination country and he'll sort it out for you... and very quickly too!!

Shipping to the UK works out at $13.45, which I think is VERY reasonable.  Some US companies really take the rip shipping overseas.  I once had a quote of $73 for three ft of macroline, which is a) not heavy b) not bulky and C) would fit into an envelope (a little one at that!!)

Hmm... I'm personally liking the smaller version for what I have in mind.  It's more... disposable and discreet rather than a lumping big board with connectors that aren't required.

Now that is a neat bit of kit... *site bookmarked*  Thanks for that one!

Well cool smiley-grin

Are you using frosted plexi on the grid in front of the LED's?
