From what I understood, the “fittest” males were those who could stay lit the longest, like who could hold a note the longest. The females would be attracted to the long-lighters, and the would-be bugs would go without.

So I set it for something like ¾sec or so.

At some point, I wanted to mod it and ended up cooking the 555. Still got it somewhere, but it doesn’t work. Just a “rat’s nest” thing, bend the pins from the 555 straight-out, solder the resistors and cap right to the pins.

A hotel manager asked me if I can find a suitable LED to mimic firefly in the hotel garden. He wants it to be as realistic as possible. Weird request but very interesting! Finding/programming a driver with random natural blinking is another challenge.

We can place several fireflies in a small light bulb diffuser in front of the sensor. But I don’t know how Maukka would get those creatures in Finland.

Toykeeper has in her Andúril Firmware random modes: Thunderstorm and candle light.
Maybe you can tinker with the values?

Let’s wait until the project gets real. Oftentimes, the clients asked me their impulsive wants. Toykeeper and Loneoceans are two names I have in mind, both of them have this “random” mode driver.
