In this instructable, I will show you how to make a USB light. plug into the USB and watch it glow...
Sorry, the pictures are bad.
Everything you need is probably sitting in a dark corner in your garage. It will give you a reason to get out that old rusty soldering iron.
Any of this stuff can be pulled off other electronics so you don't have to buy anything.
and waste all that packaging
to just go to a landfill
and fill up
Step 1: Get Your things
Glue (super glue is not good, It gets soaked up)
LED (Better if its high power, 3-3.5V)
Metal edge of a wooden ruler (or other small, flat conductor that bends)
Resistor (Also, depends on the type of LED) I used a 220 ohm, but it depends.
Masonite (or something that is similar) I used that hole board (because it's what I had)
You could recycle the LED from a flashlight or other thing that has not been working. All you need to do is to open it up and yank it out.
Same with the resistor.
