USB doomsday device usb hub Answered

I'm sure most of you have seen the USB doomsday device usb hub on thinkgeek, I'm looking to make my own, anyone have any suggestions on where to begin? I have a usb hub so i assume ill just need to rig up some lights and switches to a box, can't imagine it'll be that tough.

Yeah, easy as they come. Put all the switches in series, a resistor and then a red LED or two. If you want a sound effect as well put in a Radioshack sound recorder module and record an explosion effect from your pc with it.
