Introduction: RGB LED Strips
In this instructable, I wanted to show you my RGB (red, green, blue) LED strips. Each strip has 36 red LEDs, 36 green LEDs, and 36 blue LEDs. Overall the strips are 47 inches long except the one pictured in the far left, it's a little bit shorter. They are being powered from a 12v 1 Amp wall adaptor and there is a resistor for each LED. They are much brighter than they look in the picture.

Step 1: The LED Strips All Lit Up!
Here are some pictures of the LED strips and the controller I made. With the controller I can light any color in any combination I want. The three longer strips are divided up into four sections and I can light up any combination of colors in any section.
