We all believe in different things regarding topics of a religious, philosophical, political, and ideological nature, and it’s certainly not my place to cast aspersions on the opinions and philosophies of others (not the least that my throwing arm isn’t what it used to be). In my case, for example, one of my core beliefs is that you cannot have too many flashing LEDs in your life (“Show me an LED flashing and I’ll show you a man drooling,” as I always say).

In addition to flashing LED-based devices that I’ve purchased, like the Muzio Kickstarter Project, my office is jam-packed with my own humble offerings, such as my Awesome Audio-Reactive Artifact and my Bodacious Acoustic Diagnostic Astoundingly Superior Spectromatic (aka BADASS) display.

One of the wonderful things about flashing LED-based artifacts is that there’s always room for one more. For example, my chum Rick Curl just pointed me at this video showing the step-by-step creation of a decidedly drool-worthy 7-Band Audio Spectrum Analyzer.

This little beauty has a certain something that captivates my attention. On the one hand, it’s clean and simple and (relatively) easy to construct; on the other hand, it’s the epitome of everything that flashing LEDs have to offer, plus the fact that the design is of an aesthetic style that would work well in most settings.

My eyes keep on being drawn back to the video, while my thoughts are along the lines of, Where could I get 140 slabs of 10 × 8.5 × 1-cm acrylic cut at this time of the day? How about you? Could you be tempted to construct one of these captivating creations?
