Fiber Light is the perfect little companion to take on any journey, now you may be wondering, "why would I need to add the fiberoptic material to the light?", well Ill tell you. The Fiber Light allows you to twist and bend the light in any direction you would need but it is a softer more ambient light. This is perfect for seeing settings on your camera without messing up the picture at night, a more subtle reading light, giving small rooms a soft glow for pictures, or anything else that might need a soft light. Not only is this light a convenient light, it is also very quick and easy to build. Also great for bikers, just clip it on your backpack or bike and you have a nice light to let people know your there and see where you are going.
Step 1: The right stuff
For this project it is a fairly short list of materials you will need:
- 1 Sugru packet (You could also use gorilla tape)
- 1 small LED light
- 1 party favor with led lights and fiberoptic strands
- 1 Nerf bullet
The small LED is best to buy as a complete unit so it is more durable and easier to hold
As far as the party favor it should be fairly easy to find it at a party city or some other party store that sells fun LED lights.
Step 2: The tools for the job
You only need two tools for this project:
- 1 pair of scissors
- 1 roll of packing tape
Step 3: Slice the dart
First you will need to cut the dart into thirds approximately, it depends on what light you are using. You can always shorten the dart so make the cut big first and snip away what you need to.
Step 4: Remove the fiberoptic
Second you will have to find a way to detach the fiberoptic cable from the party favor you bought, if it does not have a way to keep it together at the base you should tape the bottom. When you are looking to buy one try to find one that is easy to detach the fiberoptic cable.
