I came to the idea of making this after I saw the Instructable of how to make an Simple music light show .
I really liked the idea of controlling Led's trough an printer port.
So it thought, 'Why not make that with some old Cd's?'.
Here's the result, I hope you like it.
It’s very easy to make and the materials are very easy to find.
Just follow the steps and enjoy the build.
Step 1: Materials
Most people already got them.
- Hot Glue Pistol
- Many old cd's
- Wires ( I've used an old internet cable, witch is perfect for this project)
- An old printer port
- 8 led's
- Soldering Iron
Step 2: Making The stacks
Depending on how many cd's you have you are going to make stacks.
In my case, I was having around 45 Cd's.
So I made stacks of around 5 Cd's each.
Every Cd needs the be hot glued onto each other.
So that at one point you are having 9 stacks of Cd's.
Be careful with the hot glue, you don't want to bent the Cd's.
After every 5 Cd's you glue a Cd on top with a gap in it. (See the image)
That's for the Led and the wires that are connected tot the Led.
Simple cut it out with a scissor.
Some Cd's may break, just pick a new one.
