Introduction: K'nex Custom LED Pinball Machine

About: I am an artist in many forms of media. I create graphic design on the computer, draw on paper, build with K'nex, and film/edit videos.

This is a pinball machine that I made. For the lighting, I used TRAXON LEDs. They rest under the machine, and are controlled by well... they're controlled by the controller. They can vary in color and brightness. I also made a special K'nex mount for the controller. The pictures and video in the next step show the lights actually changing color. The machine is custom made and fully operational.

    very cool, except it isn't much different from your other post, you could just edit it

    Yeah, all I did was add LEDs for the contest. I sent it in the night it was due, but It hasn't been accepted yet... Did you watch the video?
