Making LED Spotlights...

I love mini LED spotlights, and they truly don’t cost that much to buy, but if you’re anything like me (is uber-frugal better than saying cheap?), it’s hard to justify paying for something that’s pretty simple to make. There are tons of tutorials online to guide you through the process of making your own LED spotlights, but none of the tutorials I’ve read have so clearly articulated the process as the video tutorial posted below.  And with that being said, it should come as no surprise that it was created by Allen Hopps of Stiltbeast Studios.  ...

Homemade LED spotlights...

LED lights are like potato chips, you can never have enough of them.  So why would you ever want to buy LED spotlights if you could make them yourself?  Not only that, but I’d be willing to wager that you’re not going to find LED spotlights as slick as the ones Jason over at the Haunt The Yard blog makes.  You’ll need a little bit of talent to get these made, but not a ton, and think of how good your haunt will look at night when every tombstone in your graveyard is lit up with it’s own LED spot.     Items needed to create this include: 1/2 inch PVC 45 degree 3/4 to 1/2 inch reducers 1/2 inch PVC caps 470 ohm 1/2 watt resistors LEDs light bulbs 18 gauge wire   He’s even included a link to an LED calculator in case you’re planning on deviating from his...

Darklight Precision DMX...

Darklight manufactures the world’s smallest LED spotlights.  At least that’s what their website says, and while I’ve never measured to verify this claim, they do offer a wide assortment of micro LED spotlights and floodlights that are very tiny.  The Precision DMX, on the other hand, I have no doubt is the smallest LED DMX controllable fixture, because I’ve never seen anything quite like it before.  This tiny little unit packs quite a punch offering RGB color changing and color mixing as well as flicker, strobe, blink, and fade-in/fade-out.  It’s important to note that you will need a Darkbox Programmer to configure the Precision DMX’s address from the default of 1, or to store settings for standalone use.  Simply put, with the Darkbox you can set the output settings, they’re stored in the Precision DMX’s EEPROM, and then you can unplug the Darkbox and the Precision DMX can simply be powered on and will output the stored settings.  The recommended power supply for the Precision DMX is the PowerPak 5000, which is a 12 volt/5 amp power supply that can handle up to 16 Precision DMX fixtures at full power.  Both the Darkbox Programmer and the PowerPak 5000 are sold separately....
