I was somewhat impressed w/the Dragon's Tail LED things I saw recently on YouTube.

So, of course, in my own crude, quick, & inefficient manner, I created a prototype.

I still plan on making the lights "trail" - of course - this was just a demo, first prototype. Actually, I'd like to go to the store on Wednesday (pay day) and pick up some blue ones and make something for National Robotics Week for my school. We'll see how that goes - motion detector - blinking "M" (for our school) - who knows.

I know the number of LED's and the colors aren't optimal - these were the ONLY LED's I have on hand. And, I reckon my use of the breadboard isn't very conventional w/the servo wiring but it was very quick and hey, it works, so there.

Thanks
