Getting started with LEDs Answered
Hey Everybody, This is crazy but I ran into this website through a random link in Lifehacker and after what I saw here, I quickly made an account and I bought PRO just to support the site. I am a big fan of communities that exist to enlighten the average brain and to evolve us as beings in creating new things and getting out that genius in ya. Anyway, my current huge curiosity is LEDs. I love them, I don't know much about them except that they are little plastic bubbles that take very little electrical power to get them going. I want to learn more however, I have a project which is to light up my computer desk's edges in my room. Problem is, I don't know where to start. I tried reading a bunch of instructables here already but most of them do not really explain the wiring process. I am a graphics designer and I have had a minor in computer science but never got into electrical engineering. I understand the simple things that go behind an electrical cricuit (like power sources and positives and negatives) but thats the extent of how much I know. I need somebody to help me and get me going so I can start evolving. Could anybody here help me get started? A few explanations, guides, tutorials? Thank you very much in advance.
