I made this a couple weeks ago, the idea came to me after i was hit by a truck and broke my both my top and bottom jaws, my eye socket, both my cheek bones (i have metal plates now), my nose was broken and i broke my collar bone. I was in acoma for a week and had 5 surgeries since. This happened to me a little more than a year ago and i have racked up more than $100,000 in debt and have lost feeling in both my lips and most of my cheeks and i have loss all taste. Luckily, insurance paid for most of the bills.
After having a long time recovering i came up with the idea that will give more visibility to a skateboard. I fixed 28 LEDs onto the bottom of my skateboard deck.
FIrst, I had to drill 28 holes one inch in and spread out an inch. Then, I inserted all 28 LEDs into the holes and wired all the LEDs together in a parallel circuit then i connected two AA batteries and put grip tape over all the hardware then i was cruising with lights!
I think this helped me get better visibility and i plan on making and selling these RIght now i am in the process of making a multi color flashing LEDs with a remote control.
thanks for viewing my skateboard with under-glow hope you enjoy it!!
