It is a surface mount LED Octopus (or decapus (pronounced deca-pus as opposed to de-cap-us), or in real terms, an octopus with 10 tentacles.) It is made with SMD LED's simply because that is what I had and to avoid pouring my money into the hole in the earth that is called Radio Shack. I will never pay $3.00 for an LED. This is a great tool for those in to long exposure photography and I have included some l.e. photos I have taken using this device.
This will be turned into an Instructable at some point, weather or not it be soon, I do not know.
