Bike rear light test-fitting: #success 🚨
Cracked open the rear reflector and installed 2 CoB red LED strips (the better quality 1.5mm Aluminium base material variety). Driven by a small regulator it consumes 2-2.5W.
The reflector material does an awesome job at diffusing the LEDs and turns into a nice big red square. Without the reflector the narrow light sources were annoying.
It's a Christmas Spanning Tree!

offensive pastry, but so yummy!
Actually, nope, not offensive at all. Except to those professionally outraged at everything, maybe.

I didn't have time to mess with exposure on the phone, so I did some adjustments to the top picture to get it into the range of what I _perceive_ the brightness difference to be.
The flood-beam assembly was slightly turned in its velcro mounting, thus you can see the left beam edge, but not the right.

3 LED modules, each specified at 50W max. Reflector + lens assembly for ~120° beam angle.
Heatsink not suitable for dissipating max power continuously, but easily will handle multi-second bursts.
Very useful to remind other traffic of ones existence… 😎
h/t @MMx for the name!
I made a thing. 😊 🎉
42ish lines of #Micropython on an ESP32. Time is synced via SNTP every 60 minutes.
Small project, yet immensely satisfying! Will laser cut the acrylic into a round shape.
Next project: multi timezone by adding more 12-LED #WS2812b rings.
Usually I go for plain embedded C, but this was fun!

"I confirm that the SiTime 1532 MEMs oscillator (in the newer iPhones) stops functioning after a few minutes in a helium environment. Frequency first rises, then drops to 3KHz. Oscillator will not restart after power cycle. Full video soon!" – Ben Krasnow

Yay, new toys!
Orange Pi borads(sic!):
One Plus, 4xA53, 1GB
Zero Plus, 4xA53, 512M
Zero, 4xA7, 512M
R1, 4xA7, 256M, 2xEth 1xWiFi
The Zero Plus must be one of the cheapest AArch64 capable boards currently.
Also a bunch of matching power cables. Depending on use case I can keep the USB-A connector or cut it off.
I love open source. Information Security is important to me. I work on Icecast in my free time.
