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 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 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!

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.
