Not long ago I got a new toy, A bicycle dynamo, want to do something with it. Make a bicycle lamp is my first idea, Many people's bicycle have lamp, but it need battery, and the battery also need charging or replacement. so now, let make a bicycle lamp without battery~Here we go!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What Do We Need
- Bicycle dyname * 1
- Blue bright LED * 1
- JST 2.0 Interface * 1
- Cable * 4
- M3 Screw * 2
- M3 Nut * 2
- Cable tie
Oh! you also need a bicycle~~~
Step 2: Laser Cut the Acrylic
Download the file and laser cut it.
Here's we use 3mm translucent acrylic.
Here, as the acrylic shade, translucent glow effect can be increased.
Step 3: Make the Bicycle Lamp
1, Welding cable in LED.（Here generators, regardless of positive and negative, so you can actually just wiring.）
2, Welding cable and JST 1.0 interface.
3, Install acrylic parts as bicycle lamp.
Step 4: Bicycle Lamp Assembly
Use cable tie fix the Bicycle lamp in the front.
After the completion of fixed, long tail tie will remain on the outside, if you find this annoying, perhaps trying to cut off the tail, but the tail will be cut off sharp edges, more easily scratched, so I propose to tails tied up.
Step 5: Bicycle Dynamo Assembly
Step 6: Maker It Better
Actually come to think, this lamp is mounted on the rear wheel may be more useful, hahaha ~ Hope we can play a more fun project ~
