All you need to do is pulse light at the right frequency ... (switch it on and off fast)

They can do this using a TV as the light source ....

"Japanese cartoon triggers seizures in hundreds of children

TOKYO (CNN) -- The bright flashing lights of a popular TV cartoon became a serious matter Tuesday evening, when they triggered seizures in hundreds of Japanese children..... at least 618 children had suffered convulsions, vomiting, irritated eyes, and other symptoms after watching "Pokemon."...."

The above incident was caused by a frequency that triggers seizures (perhaps a genuine mistake by the cartoon maker) ..probably affected only those very close to the TV.
