Arduino pencil powered carbon arc light / retina burner :)

Arduino pencil powered carbon arc light / retina burner 🙂

Let’s hearken back to a simpler time. Say, last night? When Thomas Edison inspired me to improve upon the 200 year old design of the carbon arc lamp. Made possible by two pencils and an Arduino. Honorable mention to Dangerous Prototype’s ATX breakout for supplying the 12VDC and 0.5amperes. Also, thank you goes to a class act, Ian Lesnet, for the prompt and kind PFO to a request for free stuff. Hey, ya don’t ask, ya don’t get. Remember the little guys at promo budget time!
