In my last post, I linked to a project for a jar of fireflies made out of LEDs. Well, with the micro controller and a little programming, it seemed a bit over-the-top to try. Instead, I'm going to try this analog firefly light. It looks simpler which means I'm more likely to actually do it.
Last year I saw some neat firefly lanterns at Target. They were really simple wire encased lanterns that kids could fill with the bugs and carry around. The thing is, I live in the Northwest were we get no fireflies. To kids around here, those bugs are merely myth. Now if you could get boxelder bugs to light-up, we'd be good to go.
I'm working on some sewing projects. Actually, I'm working on gathering the materials in one place so I can look at them and feel guilty for ignoring them.
