Picture of LED Strip Lantern
I had a roll of about 4 metres of white strip LEDs and I wasn't quite sure what to do with them. Then, one day, I had the idea of wrapping them around a vitamin jar to make a battery powered camping lentern. 

Step 1: Container

I used an empty Swisse vitamin jar as my container for the batteries and something to wrap the LEDs around.

You might be able to puy a coil of wire inside the bottom and make a contactless battery charger. I like it and my thought was to try and add my finger nail size arduino to control those RGB strips.

Cool! Check out my helmet I made, I also used LED strips. They are pretty handy huh? :D

Yeah they are, they even make LED strips that you can control the colour of each LED independently via serial, would be great for decorating a christmas tree.

PS. I had a look at your helmet and it's very cool! =)
