Submission + - Open Source Flashlight Gaining Traction (

zigziggityzoo writes: Inventor and battlebot-champion Christian Carlberg is turning an idea for an open source flashlight into reality with this kickstarter campaign. End-users will be able to both change the default brightness via serial interface, and re-flash the uC via USB interface. Additionally, the CAD drawings for the flashlight housing and the breadboard drawings will be released for the public's use as well.

At the time of this writing, the Kickstarter campaign has already far exceeded the $31,000 goal, and he intends to deliver at the end of this summer.
