I really wanted to put something into the Get the LED Out! Challenge, then this idea just popped into my mind like how you pop popcorn! Mmmm, popcorn. Yum.
So, here's how to make and LED Spinnie, LED Rollie, or a cool LED Cylinder tubish thing with only a few pieces, and most of them are K'nex!
I hope you like it!
Step 1: Items.
- 3 tire outsides.
- 3 tire insides.
- Toy with LED sphere inside.
- A lot of green rods. About 40, just in case. Make it 50.
Step 2: Obtaining the LED part.
Once you do that, open up the sphere and get the LED thing.
Step 3: Wheels Part 1.
Put in 1 gray inside for the wheel.
Now, add on 16 green rods in the spaces provided.
** Make sure the tire looks like how it does in the second picture!
Step 4: Adding in the LED thing.
See the button?
You want the circle part of the button to go FACE DOWN into the wheel's hole.
Check out the pictures for more help.
Once you finish doing that (in about less than 20 seconds), move onto the next step.
Step 5: Wheels Part 2.
Once you do that, get the gray wheel inside.
Push it into the wheel, but make sure it doesn't go in all the way, because it can't, and it would make the other side pop out.
Once you do that, move onto the next step.
Once you finish what is typed above these words, look inside the wheel's holes. If you can see the battery (kind of) in one side, and the button in the other side, that should be good. Then, get a white rod and push it into the button. If it starts blinking and stuff, you're good to go.
