I just came across this morning, and have pledged $60 (pre-ordered). How can anyone that considers themselves a geek not have a programmable flashlight ;)

Looks really cool! I would be tempted to buy the flex simply for the rechargeable battery!

Well finally showed up in the mail today, nice xmas present - going to give me something else to play with over my holiday break. Took only a few minutes grab the software and upload some demo code. Even combined some demo code with the factory code - so I can officially say I have programmed my first "flashlight" ;)

Here is ****ty pic from work BB showing it connected via usb to upload program and charge.

Although cool geek gadget (Y) not sure I could justify having one but it doesn't mean I can't lust after it :D
