DIY RGBW flashlight

Convoy distributes complete flashlights as well as empty housings. These are the perfect base to build flashlights according to your own needs. There are many different LED’s and drivers that fits in these hosts. This article is about a 4 colour LED with some nice effects as bonus, I like the police beacon.

In the asylum, with a lantern in hand, an idea in the head and a small chat

Light painting for memory.   The final phase of life, the one full of grey interpretations, usually is far away from hope, joy, and love. A generation of “orphaned parents of children,” which does not include a pleasant conversation and excludes the “presence for nothing, just to be together,” hinders values and interests sharing, resulting in the assertion of individuality and family life focused on the younger ones.
