    I stumbled across this gadget during my web travels
    http://www.efx.co.uk/ml/classic.html and wondered if anybody could provide
    pointers to information on how I could build something similar. Suggestions
    as to suitable microcontrollers and software etc would be great too. I sense
    a Christmas holiday project coming on :)

    Try an auto electrical wholesaler or a good chandler.

    I regularly see hi-intensity truck/bus lamps and I'm sure that I've also
    seen hi-intensity nav lights on passing river barges...(They flicker)
