    Interesting because it's powered by high intensity LEDs instead of a traditional lamp.

    Ok, that should be good for starters.

    Rick,

    So what you want is a self learning board. I like that idea, wait a minute, isn't that where the Terminators came from :D

    If people dont know . i currently have started (very early stages) of creating a wireless crontroler. I have recieved a few Nordic based wireless modules and am currently designing a transmit / recieve board to do testing with with the idea of moving to a wireless light controller after that.

    thanks to wjohn i managed to be able to afford to buy 26 modules. a few of which are hopefully making thier way to phil .

    If any of the developers are interested i can probably sell a few wireless modules if needed. at the moment they have cost me $8.50 aust each so if people want any pst me and we can talk.

    Also if anyone is interested in more information pls let me know.
