  1. I did something like this a few months ago but never got to making an enclosure for it. My version also provided multiple light modes that could be selected by pressing a button. It also used a photo cell for a flash trigger in the first mode. Other modes include a Solid White, Solid Orange, Solid Purple, and Fire light flicker effect for video.

    Here is a link to my code for this:
