Ok, so if youve checked my tail light threads lately, you would know that ive been messing with a micro controller to make the superbright LED tail that i made(or any other tail light for that matter) strobe.

I have changed it so it strobes for a few seconds then goes solid. I think it may be a bit too long of strobe. Might cut it down to about 2 seconds of strobing. Anyways its pretty difficult to look at in person..haha
Let me know what you think! Any suggestions are appreciated because these are made for riders, so i want it to be exactly what riders want.
***Brake light and running light are very different brightnesses, my iphone camera is compensating for the different light outputs..thats why they look similar.***

Sequential signals arent as noticeable as normal signals like mine. The flux output increases as they spread outward. Mine is just constantly maxed. You can probably tell i like to be seen..based on all the things ive made.. :-p

I like the first one, maybe strobe about half the time. I would like something like that for mine.

Dope work! I've always wanted to get into the micro controllers and computer-controlled patterns. Save that for the winter more than likely.

For the strobe duration, you really don't need a lot of time. Less than two seconds for sure. Maybe 6 blinks or so, then solid. Hell, even one blink can change how much you're noticed.
