    That'll get some serious driver attention!

    I think you can program some interesting flash patterns with the Lflex.

    Does it generate enough heat that the finned GoPro mount helps?

    nice! Good side visibility too. I programmed one of those cheap ATtiny13 drivers with a Dinotte-style on-and-double flash (on-flash-on-flash-on-on-on-on-on-flash-on-flash) a while back and it's very visible, even in bright Texan sunlight.

    With an external battery pack, scar's light should run for a long long time using an on-and-flashing pattern.

    Whoa that is a nice looking light! What does the beam pattern look like? It's hard to tell from the video... I like the glass protruding front the front, should help side visibility. Does this work with the ubiquitous MS connector and battery packs? I'm looking to start commuting and would like a high- or helmet-mounted red light, but I'm afraid to ask what this costs...

    Also, I used to live in Lakewood right on GM, which looks like your backyard!
