Well, I must admit that this one took me by surprise. My chum Jay Dowling just pointed me at the YouTube Channel of a guy who travels under the name of Atomic14, which is, of course, the atomic number of silicon.
In particular, Jay pointed me at a video titled Look Mum no wires! These wireless LEDs will blow your mind! Well, I’m always open to a mind-blowing experience, so I bounced over to feast my orbs.
Wow! This is really interesting. Of course, my next thought was, “I wonder how we could make these ourselves?” You can only imagine my surprise and delight to discover that Mr. Atomic14 has us covered with a follow-up video called How to make your own Wireless LEDs — it’s like he was reading my mind.
Up until a couple of minutes ago, I’d never even considered the possibility of wireless LEDs. Now I feel as though my life will be incomplete without them! What say you?
I once wrote a blog about solutions looking for a problem (https://www.embedded.com/a-solution-looking-for-a-problem/)
As a stand-alone idea, I think I have another candidate for the list.
Oh so cynical for one so young LOL
Make your self a Glove for infinity stones.
Ooh — an Infinity Gauntlet (i.e., a Dwarven-made Uru glove that can channel the power of all six Infinity Stones) — that would look good on me here in the office LOL
Hmmm. Clever. I wonder if you could activate different LEDs but having them at different resonant frequencies and changing the drive frequency of your coil? Again, as Aubrey says, a solution looking for a problem. But I do a bit of close-up component photography and if you could use white LEDs and get enough brightness out of them they might be handy as wireless illumination for that….
Congratulations — now you have a new project to play with — let me know how you get on 🙂
