Magnum Condom LED Music Light

Introduction: Magnum Condom LED Music Light

Sound Activated Condom Lights. Must see the video ending :)

Step 1: Supplies Used,

2 Blue 5mm LED's 3.7 volt 2600mcd
2 5mm LED Holders
2 Condoms
Heat shrink wrap
Some thin gague wire. I used an old phone cord.

Clear Silicone
2 tops off a Gaterade bottle
Electrical Tape
Wire strippers

Step 2: Putting It Together

Install the LED's into the holders, and attach the holders to the bottle tops.
(Note, the longer leg on the LED is positive, so hook your wires up accordingly.)
Add some thin wire to the LED's(I use an old phone cord), and attach the wires to your speaker wires. This will only work on amplified speakers, or speakers that plug into the wall.

    I dont want to break the news to you, but a friend made it for the guy, so you can't really get it.

    Maybe want to say Non Lubricated Condom?

    well my LED burned..
    it worked and i volume my speaker up, the LED actually started to turn into red and burned. :(

    but for the whole things, it works though.
    Wave thro the LED- let it FLOW~

    To avoid any damage you could use fast switching relays. WIth relays you could also run larger lights...

    there are two problems with this implementation, first is that an LED is a diode and audio signals are ac, so the audio that reaches the speakers would be rectified and you would only hear the top or the bottom of the sound waves, the second is a diode represents a constantly changing series impedance which would destroy the impedance matching between the speakers and the source, resulting in bad sound at best and equipment damage at worse.

    What if you hooked just the LED to the Speaked output. Left channel music right channel Lights? Still the second greatest thing to use a condom for

    Yes, I've seen many of these LED instructables, all running on A/C, I wonder if you could use your d/c powered iPOD instead. Just cut the headphone cord and install the led. If you want to hear the sound too, you can get a speaker set for a little bit of nothing on eBlah and do the same thing. Heck...This calls for a new instructable! Seeing as I dont own a iPOD (fighting the man, or some such), I wouldn't mind someone stealing my idea. Maybe it's already been done?

    viacin your missing the point. The power that the source uses doesn't matter, it's the electricity coming out of the headphone port that does. Analog audio is always AC. I would think an LED would be even worse on an iPod actually since iPods output much less power than most stereos and I think(but don't know) that a constantly changing impedance mismatch would be much more noticeable on a pair of high impedance headphones(16 to 32 ohm) versus lower impedance(4 or 8 ohm) speakers. geof, it would probably work to use an led on just one channel with no speaker but you would have to add a fairly heavy duty resistance as well since most audio sources don't like playing into shorts. Also I would put 2 LEDs in parallel but with reverse polarity, so that the audio source didn't see any rectification.

    Im Glad You didnt use your mouth to blow that up.
