so after thinking about the best way to over engineer the problem i came up with a solution.
Step 1: The first step, make something.
the materials i am using are simply:
.1: a 9volt 1 amp wall wart
.2:lm7805c 5 volt voltage regulator
.3:electrolytic capacitor, 35volts 10 microfarad
.4:metal film capacitor, 50volts .1 microfarads
.5: 5 100 ohm resisters
.6: 8 ultra violet leds, i forgot the specs to.
.7: brand new large breadboard, fresh out of the pack from Radioshack, the overpriced shop of wonders.
actually most everything is from Radioshack so it's not like i can complain about the price.
