    Just to be clear to make this project I need:

    Lego part 6637 a Lego Fiber Optics Element
    A Lego Motor ::Which one? 8203 the Power Functions motor set? the L motor? Train Motor? Any motor. I can't find one that looks like yours::

    An RCX brick...maybe? :: If it's only used for power can I just use a Lego battery pack??? How much power do I need, can I attach multiple Lego Fiber Optic Elements in a series or daisy chain connection if I have to much voltage?::

    Any Lego Fiber Opics Cable...maybe??

    Lego wire... maybe the extension wire Part 8886? but it doesn't look like it...

    Pegs and Beam... actually easy to find on the Lego site so that's fine

    For someone with out a box full of random Lego components this Instructable doesn't have enough information for me to obtain the parts. Which sucks cause it's a REALLY cool idea.

    Can you go back. Make a list of parts (with part numbers or official part names) needed to make this? Then list parts that can be subsituted? Like

    Parts needed:
    Power Soure (RCX or LEGO Battery pack with ##volt output)

    Motor (L motor part #### will work or Motor #### will work)

    So on and so forth.

    Please? This is really cool. Thanks!

    I would suggest lego education) would have some parts. I got my FOS at I got it for a low price. the shipping takes a while. worth it. I think you can modify the LED inside to change the colors, like blue. thanks 4 the comment!
