The fob of this item contains a photograph of an F-16 aircraft in flight. Overlaying this is an LCD shutter driven by a photocell-powered circuit which switches the shutter on and off with a period of about 2 seconds; The effect is a blinking image of the aircraft when light shines on the key fob, thereby drawing attention to the image.
