A favorite memory of mine is from childhood. During bedtime my brothers and I would lie in the dark until sleep came; talking about all the things we'd do once we were older, or about which xmas gifts we wanted or even about girls.
Finger Lights are red LEDs fashioned to the end of soft quilting thimbles that go over the end of each finger. The hopes is that the LED will provide enought light to allow each finger to be seen in the dark so as to allow the user the ability to communicate with someone else while sitting/lieing in the dark. Initially, my idea was to make them recharable utilizing a pull type charging system (similiar to the OLPC pull charger) that gets fashioned into some cool looking wristband. With this current design, I think it is too bulky. Ultimately I would like to use smd LEDs and something less clumsy than the soft qulting thimbles.
Step 1: prepare the soft thimbles
cut holes in the tops of the soft thimbles. Make the holes large enough for the led to poke through, but no too big.
