Step 1: Parts and Materials:
6.Power Supply (That can give 12v)
Step 2: Tools:
Step 3: Glueing the Sponge to the Fan
Add a little bit of hot glue to the sides of the CPU fan. Glue it a bit far from the propeller so that it doesn't interrupt it when it spins.
Step 4: The Schematic and Prototyping
Follow the schematic and prototype it on a breadboard to see if everything works. The power input must not be 7.5v but 12, sorry my mistake.
Step 5: Making of the Body and Adding the LED
Cut the cardboard into shape. You can design your own case.Glue all the parts together. Make a hole for where you want to add LED's. I decided to add feet because it was not stable. Now it can stand on its own.
Step 6: Sanding Out the Impurities
Sand the rough edges.
Step 7: Soldering the Electronics
After following the schematic and soldering the switch and everything else. Now it is time to check if everything still works.
Step 8: We Are DONE!
There we go we are done! Cheap and effective and will help your health. Check back in a few weeks for other instructables. Feel free to ask me questions even if they are not related to the tutorial. If I know the answer I will try to answer it the best way I can.
