    While Not the Greatest Invention in the World, I picked these up at Costco, where the Bulb has a slide switch, for one to choose from 5 Different Kelvins of White!

    My Brain Fried, as maybe 10-11 years ago, running Comet LEDs, I worked for about 6 months to make a Miniature version of these, so there would be ONLY one White Bulb needed for any Game, any Taste.

    Sadly, the smallest test Proto was a Large 15mm Flasher type Bayonet Base, with 3 Temperature.
    The cost, if we could have shrunk it, would have been double, so we abandoned it.

    Today, this costs $1.69 a Bulb! Any One have a Shrink Ray?

    Its interesting what excites different people....
    I'm making a Lime Jello Mold tonight with canned Pineapple, while listening to Judas Priest and perusing Pinside.
    Good times.

    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    Pretty sweet. I've seen mobile app-controlled versions of this, but I have an aversion to stuff like that. Much prefer the physical switch.

    And since everyone's a nitpicker... I'd happily give up 6500 for a 3500 level. 6500 is brutal, can't imagine wanting that outside of an operating room.

    Saw your other Post,

    Agree. I had the Toughest time answering the "What shade of White to use, So I made Sunlight, But Most of my games use all 3 Temperature Whites in the GI, and Back Box.

    Different Tastes, but no way for my eyes to see what others like or didnt like...All Good!
