DIY: 500 LED Extreme Flashlight

So you think you’ve got a bright flashlight. You got nothing! This guy built his own, with 500 LEDs (which consume a shockingly low 50 watts when it’s powered up. This guy is so good, he wasn’t just content to build the most ridiculously bright LED flashlight in the world, oh no. He also built a custom interface for it that allows him to make it flash, control the power levels, and even signal for help. So here’s to you, extreme flashlight guy. Sure, you did this a while ago, but it’s so cool it deserves a mention on a slow Sunday afternoon.
