I recently broke my night light as I dropped it...so I needed a night light, and after a bit of searching etc, I thought why not make a zip tie cube night light! The light was small but provided enough brightness for me!
I had one challenge to face...the challenge was weather to power it by battery, AC power slot, or by USB...I decided that USB was the easiest because I usually play some music all night long and my pc is on, so I decided to power it via USB!
I needed a way to scare my friend, and after thinking about it, I decided to use this to scare my friend, andit worked! It was midnight and as he woke up to go to the bathroom, I turned the light on from a distance, and as it kept changing colors and brightness, I put up some scary music (Lucky we were having a sleep over, and his parents were not there!) And then he was so scared that he wet his pants!
I turn this on and leave it towards the wall at night which creates really awesome projections of light on the wall!
Some times the zip ties went in too much and I had some minor problems, but they were easily dealt with!
Here is a video of the finished product! Hope you like it!
