Make a more obvious low battery warning
Authored by: Levito on Feb 23, '11 08:21:18AM

Strange script. It assumes you're playing iTunes music. If you're not it, starts up iTunes. If you're listening to music from another app (VLC perhaps), it will blow out your eardrums when the volume is set to 100.
Why not do something like invert the colors of the screen for 5 seconds, then invert them back?

Make a more obvious low battery warning

I wanted something to let me know in earshot of the computer, not necessarily when I was at it. I generally have itunes open all the time, so this works for me. Improvements/changes/suggestions are most welcome.

I like your idea to make the screen flash inverted very much, how would you do this in applescript?

Yea, I get it, a lot of the custom scripts are just that-- custom. Doesn't work for everyone, but gives people a good idea of what's possible. For inverting colors on the screen, check this post
