Go ahead.. Get it off your chest.

I'll start.

I think Madden sucks.

I also thought Duke Nukem Forever was a good game.

I do not believe the lights can make a normal person have a seizure, but rather the crazy blinky lights will just cause a reaction in people that are already susceptible to it. No worries, you won't be a bad daddy if you turn the cave into a disco. laugh out loud

My father has seizures (broad name: has epilepsy) but has no reactions to lights or games (remember the warnings on our gameboys?). There are a lot of misconceptions about people with seizures too, most people think it is grand mal or nothing...my father could have one standing right next to you and you wouldn't know. Most of the time you would notice though, and you'd think he was just being weird. His didn't start until he was older, about 12 I think.

tl;dr....it would actually be best case to trigger the seizure at home while playing in the 'cave' rather than having it discovered in an unsafe environment when she's older (like a night club or something).

haha, it's dope. I used it to install a HID KIT at night a few weeks ago. Also my daughter and I use it to go exploring caves (we turn off the lights in the bathroom and pretend it's a cave).

You kind of need a specific frequency, which is rather high, as well as some alternating colors to trigger that. Or a specific episode of Pokémon. More likely it would make you nauseous before anything.

The riot control versions of this that can trigger require a very specific set of tweaks to work on people without any kind of history.
