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.
<p>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.</p>
<p>nice one bro</p>
So nice
that looks realy neat!
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. <br> <br>PS. I had a look at your helmet and it's very cool! =)
Nice. Thanks for sharing. The link to the power converter was a bonus...I can use a few of those ;o)
No prob.
