So we've all no doubt heard of and seen these useless boxes before. There's loads of clips on youtube of wonderful and wacky variations of them. This is my useless box with a little bit extra...Moody lighting! Flick the switch for a lovely looking blue glow then watch in amazement as the box turns itself off and blasts out a harsh red light. Such a moody little box lol...... Anyway here is my instructable for the useless box moody lighting....

Step 1: Parts List

So not many parts are needed for this little mod which is good and the cost for it was about £1 in total haha. Here's what you need...... A Useless box. 1 Tri-colour LED. 3 Short pieces of wire (0.5mm x 100mm ish) A soldering iron. Solder and some wire cutters....
<p>Cheers mate. I was able, with a VERY cheap kit from China (without the easy to solder circuit board) and your instructions to duplicate the results. Couldn't get my solder joints as neat but that was to be expected for my third ever soldering project. The red/blue looks fantastic!</p>
It looks awesome, and Your soldering is really neat! Wish I could do that!
Haha cheers dude. When I bring your LED round i'll show you how I solder. Right now for the next project. erm...........
