Over the years my kids have collected these LED lightsabers - In 5 minutes I turned them from trash into a exciting POV (persistence of vision) project. Even though this is a simple project the results are purely satisfying.
Step 1: Parts
- Lightsaber - I bet a bunch of verities would work
- scotch tape
- wire cutters
- small screwdriver
- 3volt button battery
Step 2: Break Things - You Know in a Good Way
Inspect your saber for how it is constructed. Open it up and remove the control board and the LED strip.
Step 3: Rebuild the World
Attach the 3v button battery to wires and pray for light. If it works your almost home :)
Step 4: Let Their Be Light
Attach to fan blade and enjoy the show - Congrats builder your a HERO!
