In the workshop: Sliders’ timer

We’re currently drawing up specs for electronics for the timer from Sliders.  Thermalized Plastics, maker of the definitive Sliders’ timer kit is consulting on the project.

Pulse rifle boards coming

Posted by Lightbenders On September - 29 - 2010

With the help of Matsuo, undisputed master of all things pulse rifle, Lightbenders has designed a functioning pulse rifle counter.

Features include:

  • Countdown from 95 when trigger is pressed (support for either a relay or a momentary switch)
  • Powered by a small 3v battery (or a 9v)
  • Mounting holes that fit the standard pulse rifle faceplate

Like all our boards, this one will be professionally plated and solder masked.


X-Wing boards are coming

Posted by Lightbenders On September - 29 - 2010

Although designed specifically for the X-Wing fighter, these boards could be used in any starship models.  These were designed with the help of master model-maker Jason Eaton.

  • 8 randomly flickering LEDs (available in movie red/orange or McQuarrie blue)
  • 2 “steady on” LEDs (warm white)
  • 4 random blinking LEDs (red, blue, yellow, and green)
  • On / off switch
  • Operates on a 9v battery or a wall power adapter

We’re looking to release these mid-October.  Purchase information will be available on this site.  Of course, we can always customize colors if you’d like.  Just contact us.

Lightbenders’ logo products

Posted by Lightbenders On September - 29 - 2010

We’ve created a bunch of fun products over at Zazzle that feature the fantastic Lightbenders’ logo created by Tim Jester.  There are mugs, t-shirts, and other wackiness.  Although this is mostly for us, you can support your favorite lighting designers.
