Thread: cool modding project

    cool modding project

    The Knight rider effect is just a line of LEDs and the light travels back and forth. The same thing as the Cylons from Battlestar Galactica, if you know that one.

    Dex: Thanks, i might have to try that... but i hate PCBs... so many bad experiences from shop class. (I always got the screwed up one)

    as far as the knight rider goes, i could do that one already. Right now i'm on the verge of showing drive activity. once i get that i think memory usage will be a snap. Figuring out network activity might be difficult and as far as monitoring cpu temps, no idea how to do that one yet, but i'll keep looking into it

    this is an example, I'm not sure wich ones we've used in school but you do need transistors on the output and the PCB comes a little larger too.. - the decoders give just a few mAmps on the outputs wich is not enough for LEDs, for standard LEDs maybe but ultrabright...
