That’s very sharp, FM. Can’t wait to see the action video. Everything came together nicely!

Nice work with the driver/Bluetooth App. as well.

BT never took off in torches, but makes a lot more sense in a lantern.

After watching your video FM I’m left speechless. I’m really not sure what to say except Black Magic is alive and well in your household. The Bluetooth adds an extra dimension to what was already an amazing lantern.
You achieved so much with this where others failed. In particular flashlight manufacturers.
Well done and still speechless. Wow. Love

I finally took time to watch the videos presented in the first post. (And read the first post too… I never realized the first post now has the complete finished project.) Anyhow Mike, in single word, AWESOME!

Wow, this looks absolutely fantastic. Came across it when I was reading in the Attiny25/45/85 thread here. ^^

I did something similar with a bluetooth module and and Arduino to remote control a robotic vacuum cleaner with my smartphone.
