What Should I Do With These HUGE LEDs? Answered

Well, I was digging around in my one desk drawer and found these two soccer ball key chain light thingers, and I was like: "Hmm, are those BIG LEDs?" Further actions took place, and left me with two BIG LEDs. Now as I sat at my desk with tools, wire, plastic, and a bloody finger, My "Imagination Well" was dry. So, I am asking the community what I should do with these LEDs...

I think he was wondering what the diameter of the lens was.

I had several of those at one time. I used them all up on wearable lights for night walking, and flashlights. I sould suggest solar powered light graffiti though. I thought I saw something on Instructables or Makezine about a solar powerd light graffiti projecter using one of those LEDs, a lense, and a solar path light.

make [https://www.instructables.com/id/Beer-bottle-USB-lamp.../ this]

make a giant novelty flashlight (could do that with normal ones anyway...)

replace the led on a tv or psp with the huge ones, then people would be like, OMG! that's crazy!

you're using up my IMAGINATION WELL! you owe me the task of answering one(1) question of my choice.

shave it into a diamond and make a ring out of it that could be powered by a little lithium cell used for hearing aids.
