Speaking of filmmakers (nice segue) here's a tour of the factory making these devices. Stumbled across it when I was digging up info on its capabilities.

Truly amazing the level of ... automation. ;)

What's the matter?  You can't find people willing to work for $5/day in your neck of the woods?

I saw a comment, by a Chinese company I think, that said the very best, and the very worst products are made in China.

The trick is finding the right manufacturer ! 

Where possible I use local manufacturers ( South Africa in my case ) for assembly, engineered parts and pcbs, but the LEDs for example all come from China now, whoever I buy them from, and they are ten times cheaper when I import them.

Luckily I have found a good supplier ( so far, so good ) although the latest batch have the short lead, and the flat on the body, denoting the anode !

When asked about it, the supplier wrote, " we call them the reverse polarity type "   with no further explanation ??
With my mobile phone I can call people and talk to them -  how smart can you get ?

rofl I must admit, they do have a sense of humor. I guess you couldn't laugh with it.
Did you order reverse polarity leds, or did they take the liberty of providing you better quality than paid for? 8)
