RGB LED Strobe

May 6th, 2013

I played around with this technique in high school, but NOW there are some crazy bright LEDs that work a lot better. The basic concept is to strobe red, green and blue LEDs so quickly that it looks like a constant white light. Then instead of strobing the colors at the same time flash them at different times. You still see a constant white, until something moves, then you see a color separated strobe style image. It is pretty cool to look at, AND could be used for scientific uses (green is .5ms, blue is 1 ms, red is .5 seconds). Or as I hope to do at some point make a single handed clock (A rather quickly spinning hand, with rather precisely timed (and synchronized) strobe pulses).
