Boredom sometimes tends to cause creativity in me. I should be bored more often! I had a lot of fun creating this image, and it was rather obvious once I thought about it. One flash was underneath the PCB, while a second flash was above and behind the board with a blue gel. Et voila!


As for the board, it's actually a very old RealMagic hardware DVD decoder, back when computers weren't powerful enough to play back DVDs without hardware assistance. :D
