Let's get started!
Step 1: Supply List
-Some translucent computer keys, i found mine on an expensive microsoft keyboard broken in the trash
-a battery pack, i used a 2 AAA
-An LED, you could use more i assume, i just used one.
-a switch, so you can turn it off.
-a bit of wire, i used scrap wire
-an altoids tin, or similar tin
Step 2: Modify the Tin
Step 3: Positioning the Letters
Step 4: Putting Together the Circuit
After it's all soldered together you can hot glue it to the bottom of the tin so it stays secure.
Step 5: Glue on the Letters and Turn It On
This is a really messy process, i'm sure a better option is around. I used about 3 sticks before i thought it was good enough.
After the glue cools, turn it on and enjoy!
Step 6: Find a Cool Place to Put It
some ideas for improvements:
-an led behind each letter
-thinner profile so you can wear it.
-sound activated, blinks with the beat!
