This circuit was developed as an offshoot of The Rabbit Hole, our local hackerspace's pumpkin carving night. There was interest in using LED candles to illuminate the pumpkins.

It can be used for pumpkins, or any other decoration in which a candle is desired. The PIC microcontroller will be pre-programmed as well.
