Introduction: HACKED!: Flickering Light Bulb for Halloween
It is time to scare your friends. In this project I will show you how I "hacked" a normal led light bulb. This way it will flicker like the lights in every horror movie when something bad is about to happen. It is a pretty simple build if you have some experiences with electronics.
Step 1: Watch the Video!
The video already give you all the information to get this build right. But I will cover the most important ones once again.
Step 2: Order Your Parts!
Here is a small list of the parts you will need (affiliate links):
1x Arduino Uno:http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?...
1x BUZ11 N-channel MOSFET:http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?...
2x 10k Resistor:http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?...
2x 100nF Capacitor:http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?...

Step 3: Build the Circuit!
Here are the two schematics that I created during this project. The first one is just a quick test with an Arduino Uno. The second one on the other hand is my final design which will later control the led bulb.
Step 4: Program the ΜC!
Here are the two Arduino sketches that I created. The first one is only the test code. The other one is made for the Attiny85.
Step 5: Success!
And there you go. Now you can scare your friends with your own flickering light bulb.
