When I saw those "Mini Pig" flashlights at Dealextreme
I fell in love and ordered plenty of them. Those cute flashlights are only $0,79 and always a funny present for friends and family. But they also save money to the electronic enthusiast: One flashlight include 2 superbright LEDs and three button cells. For $0,79 this is a very good deal. But instead of taking them apart and throwing the plastic to the landfill I decided to make a cute DiskoPigs light installation for my next party.

The heart of DiskoPigs is a hacked MiniPOV
. I didnt want to take my original MiniPOV so I built it on a perfboard, but you can just use your MiniPOV-Kit from Ladyada to make it. Basically I substituted the LEDs with the Mini Pig Flashlights, changed the code a little bit and mounted everything on an old record disc for the disco feeling.
Unfortunally I forgot to take photos, but I'll try to recover the way I built the DiskoPigs.
