USB LED Keyboard Lamp

Introduction: USB LED Keyboard Lamp

Hi friends,
im new in instructables and this is my first project in instructables

The circuit is very simple.
what all things you need are;
1. two cool white LEDs
2. One green LED
3. 120Ω resistor
4. some wires
5. a USB male pin

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1:

Circuits can be done as per the circuit diagram
  The wires from both the ends of a USB pin are its positive and negetive (red and black wires).
Green and White(middle two) are wires for data.don't connect these wires

For Making the Body:
Things required are;

1. flexible pipe ( I detached it from an old table lamp)
2. a reflector ( from an old torch)
3.The thing shown in red marker in the picture (detached from play station 2 dual shock controler)
     (i don't know its name. whatever, im calling it a Wieght holder)

Step 2:

First glue the USB pin and flexible pipe to the wieght holder (of dual shock controller).
Then glue the reflector on the flexible pipe.
now pass the wires through the flexible pipe.and pierce green LED to the weight holder.
I also attached a rubber stand for support.

And your  USB LED KEYBOARD LAMP is ready............

    nice one. but isn't the green Led causing glare to the eyes? would best better to put all leds into reflectors.

    Yeah it is,

    you can avoid that green one

    It would be better to use an individual resistor for each LED. With just one resistor, as soon as one LED starts to fail, they will all fail instantly.
