kontraptionist:

1,200 watts of throbbing LED power. These are going to be used in a strobe unit to freeze falling water drops, or depending on the frequency, to make them (seem to) flow in reverse. While 1.2KW sounds impressive, and it is, note that these will have a very low duty cycle. In other words, 99.9% of the time they’ll be off, so the apparent brightness will be pretty reasonable, and no heatsinks will be required. The very brief ‘on’ time is required to solidly freeze the motion of the drops, kind of like a fast shutter speed on your camera.
