Picture of Portable Powered Breadboard and LED Tester
A inexpensive, quick and easy, portable powered breadboard and LED tester. You can easily test your LED's before using them in your projects to make sure they work first. The remaining open holes in the protoboard allow for quick use of a breadboard.

Is a really nice ideea to have a tiny portable breadboard, try add more connectors and some power rails like in this picture : http://www.kpsec.freeuk.com/images/bblinks.gif

what kind if resistor is that I WANT TO MAKE THIS and can this work on a solderless breadboard

You could do this with a solderless breadboard. I think I used a 330 resistor. I found an even easier way to test though, I just use a 3v coin cell battery and touch the LED positive to positive, etc.
i know but this seems cool so yeah, thanks for tellin me the resistor size :)
