film at 9 - the flickering sign

It took me a while to get the video - little things, like an emergency trip to Montreal to visit my 90 year dad got in the way, but here is a bit of video showing the effect. I'm using several sets of LEDs, one for the top letters and another for the flicker which I run through a circuit from ngineering which I also sell for $13.95 (assembly with LEDs extra)


  1. It looks fabulous! I really have to take a look at the led lighting as there seems to be so many possibilities with them :)

  2. Brilliant!! - so film noir!

  3. Wonderful! Great idea. And I know how difficult and time consuming these "simple" thing can be.

  4. Wow, that looks good! Worth your time and effort. I like to work with flickering lights as well. I use them for my fires in a fireplace in- or outside. Would have never thought to use them in such way as an old hotel sign.....
