Ladyada demonstrates how to make your own government made $1,000,000 non-violent(?) flashlight for the much, much lower cost of $250.

From Ladyada:

"After attending a conference where the $1 million "sea-sick flashlight" (named "THE DAZZLER") was demonstrated by the US Dept. of Homeland Security, we decided to create our own version. For under $250, you can build your own dazzler and we've released the source code, schematics and PCB files to make it easy. A great Arduino project for people who really like blinking LEDs. We also added in a mode selection so you can put it into some pretty color-swirl modes, great for raves and parties!

Yes this project does indeed cause: Nausea, dizziness, headache, flash blindness, eye pain and (occasional?) vomiting! So don't use it on your friends or pets."

Watch video here. Several sample process images below.

Where has DHS been? It's been known for years that strobe lights on police cars - once very popular - were known to trigger epeleptic seizures in some people, and nausea in others. This is just a simple derivation of the strobe effect.
