I was a bit taken aback when I started watching the video for this gadget. My first thought was that I could buy something similar to this in a store and also that the lights are way too bright to stay on at night. But the fact that the lights are on separate dimmers sold me. This is a cool gadget if you have the skill and know-how to rig it up.
