Interesting that the color of the light appears to be the issue here. When researching LED bulbs I read a ton of complaints about the flickering causing people headaches. It's hasn't caused me any issues though.

If you're curious about the flicker, it's visible by filming an LED bulb at 1/8 speed. I posted some videos here a while back.


Certain cars have taillights that flicker like crazy. What percentage of people are sensitive to this? The car makers don't seem to care.
