Step 2: Tape USB Connections At Base
If you are designing this for a specific computer check the location and orientation of your USB ports. Tape the USB plugs for the fan and lamp together at the base accordingly.
Step 3: Bend 90 Degress And Tape Again.
Bend the lamp and fan arms 90 degrees so as they point at god once plugged into the USB ports. Tape again directly above the bend.
Step 4: Cut And Add Coat Hanger.
- Cut the longest piece of straight section from a standard wire coat hanger.
- Just above the 90 degree bend you taped previously, attach the coat hanger and wrap with electrical tape again.
- Wrap the hanger, fan arm, and lamp arm again with electrical tape 2" higher.
Step 5: Heat Shrink Wrap
Cut roughly 5" of the heat shrink wrap tubing. Slip it over the lamp, fan, and wire until it rests at the base near the USB plugs. Heat with lighter till it shrinks together.
Step 6: Plug And Hoist
Plug our flag into the two USB ports in your computer. If you don't love this country enough to spare 2 USB ports then you are in the wrong place. Bend the arms and hoist your flag into position.
