Intro: DIY Glowing LED Wi-Fi Indicator
This is my first project on instructables.I have always had a thing for LEDs.So i wanted to decorate my workspace with lights doesn't matter whether they have any functional value or not.For my first project i made a glowing WiFi led indicator.
First collect the following things:
1. Scissor, Ruler
2. Art Knife
3. 6 LED in strip format,2 pieces 3 in each of any color u prefer.i took green.
5. Plastic Covering of some container.It must me white and has at least 5mm difference between the top and bottom surfaces along the edge.
6. Paper; 1 Black and 1 White
8. Soldering iron and solder
9. 12V DC adapter
First of all,cut the 2 papers according to the shape of the plastic top.Keep in mind the black one goes on the top.
Make a WiFi symbol on the black paper and cut it neatly.
Cut the plastic also in a triangle only if it is not WHITE.If its white, then cutting is redundant,(which i realized after i completed it..:P)
The LEDs are pasted and final shape has arrived.
Solder the LEDs with a wire and hook it up to a 12v DC adapter....and u are done.
Do paste a white conforming white paper in the back after soldering the LEDs.Otherwise,u may not get the full reflection and the glow will reduce.
And its ready now as u can see it....enjoy.... :-)
