Firefly update

So I've been working on a cost effective way to reproduce the firefly effect that is in the loading area of PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN ride at Disneyland.
There are a few online companies that sell firefly lights but they are at least $200.00 bucks for the base models.
I'm not about to pay that much for some stupid little lights so...
I'm makin' them myself.

I just completed the first three self contained battery powered fireflies for way less than $200.00
(Note: way WAY less than $200.00)

These things look so great. I was testing one out this eve and a neighbor commented on how good it looks.

I'll try and get some video of this soon. Its amazing how inexpensive these are and how damn good they look. I wonder why people haven't done this before?

My sister says I should sell these online.

I just might.
If you cant wait for my waaaaaaaay cheap version buy the silly expensive versions! Click on the title of this post to take a gander at the expensive versions.

Making them yourself huh? Just as long as u don't electrocute an elephant like that cruel bastard Thomas Edison.

Battery operated and self contained. Its amazing how great they look. I swear the action is the same as in Disneyland.

I'm a genius!
