  • Red light modification for car map lighting

    I want to have all red led night lights in my bathrooms and hallway, so the kids can see to go to the bathroom at night.

One company (and only one that I could find) sells red led nightlights... well they sell 3 color nightlights that you can set to just red. I don't want to have to spend all that $.

Great idea!And for those of you who are on the computer and mobile phones a lot at night, there are programs you can download to "warm up" your screen at night so not to deplete your melatonin. One is called F.lux, but I haven't tried it yet. To use that one you must be jail broken/ rooted.. Not sure with other ones. I spend most of my time on the pc/ phone at night because it is the only time I have to myself! It is hard on the eyes.
