Improved lighting for Pocket NC

Now that I’m making a lot of videos of machining with my Pocket NC, it was getting annoying setting up lighting for each one.  Thus I rigged up some LED strips in the interior of the enclosure.  Now I can shoot 60fps video any time of the night without having to set up external lighting!  Here’s to hoping a chip doesn’t short it out.
