any tri color light out there to create a functional white?

This isn’t really a DIY post, but can’t find where to “discuss” lights in general… Move where appropriate.

I was just think about how I really like the lexel aux board from TIR lens with color, I think there’s gotta be a viable market and product to be had here.

Instead of aux board, why not just use 3 (or more) different color LEDs?

  • 3 primary (or more) color led, portion of the light gets internally reflected to create a really fun look.
  • Each color can be use individually, or a combination of them via the UI to create a fun number of possibilities.
  • All colors combined SHOULD get you close to white to serve it primary purpose of lighting to make this still a valid (edc) light.
  • light beam or pattern on wall may create interesting pattern depending on distance and design goal.
  • Bonus feature, since this light can light up with at least 3 different colors. One can explore more features on the body or the pattern, etc.

thoughts?

there are rgb controllers, they are made to work with 5 or 12v strips, they can work with color leds as well, but you’ll need to have 1 mode driver , or a resistor for each led, since controller does not limit current, and that is all, this set up will do exactly what you ask.
