  1. Hello everyone- I want to make a strip of red lights to fit to the front of
    my car (just like Kit from Knightrider). Can anyone tell me exactly how this
    can be done?
  2. Thanks man- I'll let you know how I get on. ---------------~{X}~--

    In the 70s I met the guy who did the effect for the Cylon helmets in
    Battlestar Galactica. He later did the Knight Rider car. They had to use
    quite bright incandescent lamps because LEDS were invisible under bright
    studio lamps and in bright sunlight. Because of this, the lifetime of
    the effect without maintenance was short.

    Today we have superbright LEDS. Make sure you get some of those. They
    used mechanical switches to scan the lights.
