KITT Scanner
Among all the designs for running and flashing light displays we have published over the years — and that’s a respectable number — there is one that can be said to have generated truly phenomenal interest: the ‘KITT scanner’. Although it appeared quite a while back (16 years ago already!), we still receive requests for it. Was it such a wonderful design? Not at all; it was just a simple light pattern that continuously ran from left to right and back again – but as luck would have it, the hero of a TV series that was very popular at the time drove around in a car with exactly the same type of display mounted in the grille.
