I picked these up yesterday. They're tri-color (Red Green Blue) LEDs with built-in oscillators. That means they cycle through different color combinations as long as they have power. I installed them into my front panel for a very cool looking eject button biggrin.gif

I'm afraid pictures just wouldn't do this justice, so here's a video instead of one complete cycle smile.gif

As you can see from the video, the oscillators of the 2 LEDs aren't matched exactly, but I think it actually makes it more interesting.

[UPDATE] The LEDs I bought (in Australia) are from Jayacar. Link to the LEDs on their site:

Some people have found them at All Electronics (I think that's in the US). Link to the LEDs on their site:

Nachonut has started selling similar LEDs. His LEDs flash, as opposed to fade. Check his thread:

I came across them accidentally smile.gif I was just buying some bright green LEDs for another mod, and the guy was like "For future reference, you might to check out these new LEDs we got". He plugged one into his little LED tester and it lit up red. I thought to myself "hmmm... Yeah, REAL cool. What the hell are you going on about?" Then it changed to green etc. and I thought to myself "Holy *&%#$!!! I gotta get me some of those!" hehehe

I found them in my local electronics store here in Sydney (Australia). I wouldn't have a clue where to find them online that will ship to the rest of the world, but if I get a lot of interest, I'll buy a bunch of them and sell them from my site.

They are described as:

5mm Flashing Tri Colour High Brightness LED

An ideal LED for eye catching displays. The lens is waterclear yet the LED produces an dazzling chasing pattern through red, green, and blue.
