Top LED Instructables Answered

The number of awesome LED Instructables keeps increasing, and we want to show them off! We have an older list of top LED Instructables, but within the space of a year and a half, including the very successful Let it Glow! and Get the LED Out! Contests, we've gotten many more cool projects that light up with color due to LEDs. Here are, in no particular order, 10 more great LED Instructables for you to try (or just admire):

LED Chess Set
With some dedicated modifying, you can turn a cheap glass chess set into a beautiful, glowing version. It also inspired another Instructable, the Simpler LED Chess Set.

Synchronizing Fireflies
A favorite of randofo's , this series of LEDs shows a possible way that fireflies synchronize lighting up at the same time.

Turn Signal Biking Jacket
Hand signals, meet technology: a biking jacket with controllable glowing turn signals built in.

4x4x4 LED Cube
Make light-based designs and patterns come to life with a large cube of LEDs.

Animated Multilayered Engravings
Transform a simple engraving into an animated piece of art with LEDs.

LED Pasties
The LED pasties became an instant classic--a very simple, very creative upgrade of burlesque pasties.

Daft Punk Replica Table
The squares on top of this table light up individually and can be programmed to make patterns and designs.

LED Creatures
These LED creatures can be programmed to recognize each other and can be a great project for kids and beginner LEDers.

Hard Hat LED Display
Geeks and construction workers are not often associated, but this hard hat bridges the gap with its LED Pong display.

Fiber Optic and LED Garden
Make a glowing garden that looks good both day and night and never needs to be watered.

Choosing these 10 was very difficult--there are an enormous number of great LED projects on Instructables.

Enjoy these projects, and let there be light-emitting diodes!
