Photon Light-Up Skateboards Answered

I came across this website last week but wasn't able to get it into a forum, but here it is. This company embeds approx. 52 LED's into each board, than wires them up in between one of the multiple veneers of wood, then connects them to a rechargeable battery and an on/off switch behind the front trucks. They come in many different colors and sizes. here are some of the pictures from the site, and they're video.

That is pretty cool- you could quite easily replicate the effect with some wire and SMD LEDs, if you didn't mind not being able to grind on the bottom of the deck- it would need to be flush with the surface, I guess. My long exposure sense is tingling...
