Introduction: Magnum Condom LED Music Light

Sound Activated Condom Lights. Must see the video ending :)

Step 1: Supplies Used,

2 Blue 5mm LED's 3.7 volt 2600mcd
2 5mm LED Holders
2 Condoms
Heat shrink wrap
Some thin gague wire. I used an old phone cord.

Clear Silicone
2 tops off a Gaterade bottle
Multimeter
Electrical Tape
Wire strippers

Step 2: Putting It Together

Install the LED's into the holders, and attach the holders to the bottle tops.
(Note, the longer leg on the LED is positive, so hook your wires up accordingly.)
Add some thin wire to the LED's(I use an old phone cord), and attach the wires to your speaker wires. This will only work on amplified speakers, or speakers that plug into the wall.

well my LED burned..
it worked and i volume my speaker up, the LED actually started to turn into red and burned. :(

but for the whole things, it works though.
Wave thro the LED- let it FLOW~

did you add a resistor to the LED ?

To avoid any damage you could use fast switching relays. WIth relays you could also run larger lights...

but relays cause access noise, and they are slow

there are two problems with this implementation, first is that an LED is a diode and audio signals are ac, so the audio that reaches the speakers would be rectified and you would only hear the top or the bottom of the sound waves, the second is a diode represents a constantly changing series impedance which would destroy the impedance matching between the speakers and the source, resulting in bad sound at best and equipment damage at worse.

What if you hooked just the LED to the Speaked output. Left channel music right channel Lights? Still the second greatest thing to use a condom for

Yes, I've seen many of these LED instructables, all running on A/C, I wonder if you could use your d/c powered iPOD instead. Just cut the headphone cord and install the led. If you want to hear the sound too, you can get a speaker set for a little bit of nothing on eBlah and do the same thing. Heck...This calls for a new instructable! Seeing as I dont own a iPOD (fighting the man, or some such), I wouldn't mind someone stealing my idea. Maybe it's already been done?

author
sumguysr made it! (author)sumguysr2008-08-24

viacin your missing the point. The power that the source uses doesn't matter, it's the electricity coming out of the headphone port that does. Analog audio is always AC. I would think an LED would be even worse on an iPod actually since iPods output much less power than most stereos and I think(but don't know) that a constantly changing impedance mismatch would be much more noticeable on a pair of high impedance headphones(16 to 32 ohm) versus lower impedance(4 or 8 ohm) speakers. geof, it would probably work to use an led on just one channel with no speaker but you would have to add a fairly heavy duty resistance as well since most audio sources don't like playing into shorts. Also I would put 2 LEDs in parallel but with reverse polarity, so that the audio source didn't see any rectification.

I'm wondering at what point during normal condom use, one pauses to think; Wouldn't it be far out if I did this with a condom?

oh and a better way to tell positive and negitive on the led isnt wich lead is longer (because not all are) look really closly at it its round but one side (at the base) is flat the flat side is negitive.

zzag made it! (author)zzag2008-02-23

The way I remember: "Cathy is short, flat, and negative." I.e. Negative leg is determined by: The cathode is the short wire and/or the flat of the bulb. (If your mind is as bad as mine, it's yours free of charge.) .

I love this video, and I actually want to do the project, but I'm still confused on the wiring. Can anyone draw a diagram or something for me?

i really want to do this and i have the right speakers but im not sure what wire to hook it up to. note 1 wire goes to my comp, 1 goes to left speaker and 1 goes to the wall, so which one is it?

I think you need to use amplified speakers, that also plug into the wall.

author

it would even cooler if you used the textured condoms like the ribbed, or twisted pleasure

I just made sure that it was an airtight seal. That's what I used the silicon for.

We need a lot more detail on how you connect the LEDs to the speakers.
