You will just need a gu10 connector that you can find in diy shops or electrical equipement stores

and a neon starter 1-2 £ so you just have to connect them in series with the main voltage

and in the gu10 connector you can experiment with multiple bulbs.

In the video i try a 50w incandescent one a 3.5w led,and another 0.75w led

i did find out that the incandescent works best but you can try more bulbs even colored ones.

A strobe light or stroboscopic lamp, commonly called a strobe, is a device used to produce regular flashes of light. It is one of a number of devices that can be used as a stroboscope. The word originated from the Greek strobos, meaning "act of whirling."
A typical commercial strobe light has a flash energy in the region of 10 to 150 joules, and discharge times as short as a few milliseconds, often resulting in a flash power of several kilowatts. Larger strobe lights can be used in “continuous” mode, producing extremely intense illumination.

The light source is commonly a xenon flash lamp, or flashtube, which has a complex spectrum and a color temperature of approximately 5,600 kelvins. To obtain colored light, colored gels may be used.
