i love the idea for this project. I am a soldering and circuit newb so bear with me.....are resistors needed? thanks
nah, maybe if you use a different power source. We used an ipod adapter which was 5 volts so we didnt need any resisotrs, if you wish to chance the power source then resistors could be neccessary
Do you have any pictures with the lamp on?
