Color Conversion

So, I was recently playing my 3ds, when I figured out that the firmware I downloaded, "Luma", can take screenshots. However, there is one problem. The program which takes the screenshots assumes that the 3ds is using 22 bit colors, when it is actually using 16 bit colors So, the image's colors are quite distorted. This is a problem. However, this shouldn't be impossible to fix, right? If I'm correct, we should be able to do the correct conversion as long as it was saved in a lossless format. Are there any programs which do this?

Colored Fluorescent

Hi there, My first time posting here, but have been reading the website for a long time. Recently I have been fascinated with lights and light art. I have been a fan of Dan Flavin for awhile and love the way he uses fluorescent lights.  One question I have is, how do I achieve colored fluorescent lights? I have done a bit of research and a few people have suggested cellophane wrapped tubes, but I'm concerned that this might burn / melt, and may look slightly amateur?  Any help would be much appreciated. I have attached a couple of examples below. L

It would be really useful while playing FPS games. I know I'm making things complicated, but I'd rather not have adhesive residue on my monitor.

Ribon cable colors

Hi all,   I just read the "Web controlled powerstrip" by rleddington. A great build and it brought something to mind; Most everybody knows the resistor color code. The rainbow ribbon cables follow that same code. A lot of folks are unaware of this. There are ten colors and if you have more than ten wires, the color pattern repeats. If you know resistor code, this makes it a lot less confusing when wiring up a lot of circuits. If you follow the pins number/color on one end, the other end goes real easy without having to look up or follow a chart you made.   Hope this helps! Thanks again for all the great projects.

7 Color LED Help

I have recently bought two 7 color blinking LED's from RadioShack and learned how to make them change colors and such. I have figured out that if you put a momentary push button switch (with 4 pins) onto the "switch" pin to ground you can get it to change to a solid color then to the cycling of all colors forever. I have two of them set up in parallel, they both start at the same time but slowly become out of sync. Can anyone recommend anything I can do to keep them in sync? I plan on putting these in my car someday as floor lights and it would be nice to have all the lights change color at the same time and not have to keep pressing the darn button over and over again to reset the LED. Any other tips regarding LED's would be appreciated. I am kind of a noob at this so please try and "dumb it down" so I can understand. I am only just grasping the basics of hobby electronics but am very eager to learn more. Actually, any tips in general that any hobby electronics enthusiast should know would be nice.

Color changing stage lights?

I'd like to make a light that will accommodate 2 or three light bulbs/spotlights/floodlights so that one comes on, and ideally fades into the other. It would be used in haunted houses. I am pretty sure this is a simple build, but I'd appreciate direction or advice.  Or a full on Instructable. A simple setup with a switch (foot pedal?) that simply shuts off one color and turns on another would do.  A button that begins to fade one color out and another in would be better.  One that can be set to fade from one to another automatically at a predetermined interval would be awesome. Such a setup can be used to create a transformation effect as simple as Jekyll into Hyde or as elaborate as girl into gorilla. The reason I would prefer it to be automatic is so it can be "plug and play" with only one actor, and work even if it's a different actor each night. Probably something like this exists commercially, and A), I don't know what it is called B) I'm doing it for the Boy's and Girl's club, which has no budget, which means I'm paying for it, which means it needs to be as low cost as possible. C) If I can build it well and inexpensively, I'd like to play with variations on the theme.
