8.23 Television Set

Of course, somebody in town has to be watching the boob tube, and of course it would be in black and white (there were color TVs in the 50s, but they were for rich folk). The idea here is not to see the TV itself, but instead see the light it casts on the room. I discovered that connecting a flicker LED in series with a white fading (so-called "breathing") LED produces a nice randomized TV-like glow. It was originally destined for Josh's house, but since that was replaced by Surkosky Lumber, I moved it to the Davis Inn. I originally built it on 27 May 2020. I sealed the red flickering LED in shrink wrap to keep it from appearing there was a kitchen fire.
