During the NAB 2014 expo last month the guys from Newsshooter had a chance to take a look at the new Scorpion LED lights which promises very flexible and portable LEDs that you can connect to almost anything.
The Scorpion LED lights started as a kickstarter project earlier this year, got twice their goal on their campaign and are now working to come up with more versions of their product.
The Scorpion LED was developed by Scottish company Blind Spot which describes it as flexible handheld, location, documentary and studio light. Here are some of the specs from their website:

- Output: 1100lm (daylight) 700lm (tungsten).
