Hack your PEZ dispenser with your USB stick and glowing LED's for eyes. After I finished this I searched and found other PEZ USB hacks but none I could find with "glowing LED's for eyes".
I wanted to to create this and still have a functioning PEZ dispenser but to my disdain the Cruizer was much too big and took up almost all my PEZ candy space and ended up only able to fit 3 pieces of PEZ candy into PEZ USB 2.0.
For this project I used.
1 C-3PO PEZ Dispenser U.S. Patent 4.966.305
1 SanDisk Cruizer mini 128 MB (because thats all I had available)
2 green LED's
Small wire, solder, soldering iron
drill with small bit to bore out C-3P0's eyes.
Electrical and Scotch tape
Step 1: Prep the device.
Crack open the USB device to reveal it's insides. I wish I would have had a smaller device to work with because the Cruizer is a little too long. Most of the inside container of the PEZ dispenser will need to be hacked away to fit the Cruizer inside.
I had to crack the device open because if I just tried to stuff it in with the cover, it fits crooked. Since the bottom of the PEZ dispenser is slotted in the middle, I found that if I crack the device open and use just half of the cover taped together with electrical tape, it fit perfectly.
