LEDs

Im trying to make a singe row 18 LED circuit, i used 18 random resistors that i salvaged from things (one for every led), i connected that to a 12v battery and only 4 light up, (1 out of the 4 are dim, the other 3 are good) what do i do to make all 18 light up. (the LEDs are blueish)?

Game turn indicator - how to build?

My family likes to play a particular card game called Phase 10. The way it works is that after each hand, the deck is handed to the next person to deal from.  We're often so busy chatting/having fun we forget exactly whose turn it is to deal. Not a big deal of course, but all our attempts to keep track have failed.  I thought it would be cute to set up a little strip of LEDs and have them be controlled by a button. Push button, next LED lights up, with each LED assigned to a player so we know whose turn it is to deal next.  There's nothing commercial I could find, and I don't know enough about LEDs, controllers, etc, to do so - so I'm looking for someone who can explain what has to be done (and the materials) so I can build it... or if someone wants to take on the project and get paid for it too, that works.  It's meant to be a christmas present for my father (who's the worst one of all about remembering whose turn it is) so - that's the estimated deadline. Anyone got info for me on how to set this up?

Build Night LEDs at Numurkah Secondary College

Numurkah Secondary College hosted is first ever Instructables build Night, featuring LEDs. A fun night was had by all, making different projects, playing with the laser cutter, 3d printer, vinyl cutter and attaching LEDs to everything including small children. Throwies were a very popular project, also a couple of sound modulators were build on the night, and a chaser that was designed for florescent tubes was converted to LEDs.  The monkey Light, and blinking faux neon signs were a hit will the little kids, and big kids alike. Thanks to Instructables for supplying the LEDs and batterys and also to Instructables member 'motoring'  for organising the night.

LEDs on eBay?

My brother and I recently made an eBay account, and we were just browsing through everything and we came across many LEDs. Most of the LEDs in bulk that I saw were from China or Hong Kong. I am just curious if anyone knows how reliable, safe, and if I would be getting my money's worth. I did buy some from besthongkong.com, and those came, but I am a little skeptical about these guys on eBay. Any suggestions?

Smiley with leds

Hi, I want to create a simple toy for children that can respond to a child's actions. I want the toy to look like a character with emotions : it can be happy, sad, etc.. I'm looking for a way to show the emotions through the 3D printed shell. I like the way the object in the picture does that. I was wondering if they use leds or lcd screen or anything else. Do you have any idea ?  Thanks Catherine

LED Gloves

I was in a bar tonight and there were these guys with these weird LED gloves and were doing this little show where they wave their hands arounds and it looked really awesome. Seems pretty simple. They have 16 watch size batteries linked up to super bright LEDs. I kinda thought that was a good project to try instead of buying a pair for 100 dollars that are considered quality.  I really don't even know how to go about this.  They're called Light Show Rave Gloves. Here's a video of what they look like afterwords. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwNCnMNs6ww&feature;=player_embedded

Question regarding Music to LEDs performance improvement.

I recently built the simple circuit that everyone has seen on Instructables on how to sync LEDs to music using the 3.5 audio jack from your computer. I had a couple question on how to improve the performance. The lights bump to the music accordingly, but it has to be a profound change in sound for the lights to really look cool. (Like from silence to a bass hit) Is there a way to improve upon this? To make the lights respond in a clearer way when there is a lot of stuff going on in the song? Perhaps a different voltage? (Currently using a 9v battery to power the system) The sound on my computer has to be turned up quite high for the circuit to respond. Is this normal? Thanks in advance.

What kind of power supply for this LED array?

Hi, My grow light failed on me recently. It's a series circuit of perhaps 3W diodes.  LED array pic: http://i.imgur.com/YQfJSrZ.jpg There are 18 diodes, and the colors are:  10 x 660nm (red), 3 x 630nm (red), 1 x 610nm (orange), 1 x 520nm (green), 1 x 430nm(blue), 2 x 450nm (blue), Total: 18 pieces Driver: http://i.imgur.com/Fpt2x4q.jpg I'm not really that knowledgeable about electronics, so what specs should I look for when buying a replacement driver? Is it as simple as getting something that is 8-12W like in the image, or is there more to it than that? Thanks.

Velleman Sound to Light module LEDs always on.

I  have made the velleman sound to light project: http://www.vellemanusa.com/downloads/0/minikits/manuals/manual_mk103_rev1.pdf the LEDs are supposed to turn off when there is no sound and go bright when there are loud sounds. Mine are bright all the time. I first tried the kit using my own blue LEDs instead of the red ones supplied, these worked for a time then they just stated to give a VERY small amount of light. I switched to the red ones and now they are on high all the time. I also accidentaly connected R3 with C4 (see PDF). C1 and R2 are also connected by solder, im not sure if it should be like that, I also kinda damaged the C1 connection hole as I partially burnt it with my soldering iron D:.  Could any of these issues be the reason why my kit inst working? I have attached pictures of my board Many thanks, Rushmoore :)

Please Help Me with a Project

Hi:) So I'm pretty new to all the electronics stuff.  The extent of my training includes the Flashing LED heart kit from Radio Shack (I did have to solder some stuff). I have also done one other project with LEDs. Anyways, I'm trying to make this without my boyfriend's help.  He has had to help me with the others because this stuff goes over my head.. Anyways, I want to take a wooden box (like from Hobby Lobby) and put LEDs in it.  Initially I wanted it to work just by opening the lid, but since that seems kind of difficult, I would also accept a switch... SO, how do I do it? What kind of power would I need? Say I use 10 LEDs? Is that too many or what? I know I didn't mention the size of the box but I haven't bought one yet.  I don't want to start a fire, therefore, I'm not sure if the wall outlet (AC?) power is right or not. I appreciate your help in advance.

battery life

Any one know about how long 4 double a's wired in series will last with a 200 milliamp load, here is what the online LED calculator said, I'm working on putting this in a small flashlight:Solution 0: 1 x 2 array uses 2 LEDs exactly +----|>|---/\/\/----+ R = 27 ohms +----|>|---/\/\/----+ R = 27 ohmsThe wizard says: In solution 0: each 27 ohm resistor dissipates 270 mW the wizard says the color code for 27 is red violet black the wizard thinks ½W resistors are needed for your application together, all resistors dissipate 540 mW together, the diodes dissipate 700 mW total power dissipated by the array is 1240 mW the array draws current of 200 mA from the source.-thanks

Getting started with LEDs

Hey Everybody, This is crazy but I ran into this website through a random link in Lifehacker and after what I saw here, I quickly made an account and I bought PRO just to support the site. I am a big fan of communities that exist to enlighten the average brain and to evolve us as beings in creating new things and getting out that genius in ya. Anyway, my current huge curiosity is LEDs. I love them, I don't know much about them except that they are little plastic bubbles that take very little electrical power to get them going. I want to learn more however, I have a project which is to light up my computer desk's edges in my room. Problem is, I don't know where to start. I tried reading a bunch of instructables here already but most of them do not really explain the wiring process. I am a graphics designer and I have had a minor in computer science but never got into electrical engineering. I understand the simple things that go behind an electrical cricuit (like power sources and positives and negatives) but thats the extent of how much I know. I need somebody to help me and get me going so I can start evolving. Could anybody here help me get started? A few explanations, guides, tutorials? Thank you very much in advance.

Temperature LED lights for motorcycle

Hi I would like to build a temperature sensing leds for my rid to work on my motor cycle to check for black ice!. I want have this circuit as small as possible (fit in a bike light so can mount on handle bars of my motor bike) I have been able to do this via a Arduino board but when I convert this to work on a Attiny85 it will not read the same results. I think this could be due to the way the Attiny85 converts the elec signal. I use a 4.5 volt battery (3 * 1.5) could this be the problem? Here is the code I have used for both the Arduino (which works great) and also the Attiny85 (not working as should) /* temp lights using Uno & LM35 Arduino */ const int tempPin = A0; const int Temperature= 0; // declare the led pins  const int led01 = 9;   const int led02 = 10;   const int led03 = 11;  //declare the variable for the temp int temp=0;//changed to = 0? int AjustTheTemp= 0; //Declare the leds as outputs void setup() {    Serial.begin(9600);      pinMode (led01, OUTPUT);   pinMode (led02, OUTPUT);   pinMode (led03, OUTPUT); }     // Main Program     void loop() {         // read the voltage from the temp sensor     // and change it to celsius     int reading = analogRead(Temperature); float voltage = reading *5; voltage /= 10; float TemperatureC = (voltage - 0.5) ; //show temp in monitor so can make changes        Serial.print("TEMPRATURE = ");   Serial.print(TemperatureC );   Serial.print("*C");   Serial.println();     delay (1000);//delays the print to monitor                // by 1 sec   if (TemperatureC<(1-AjustTheTemp)) {   digitalWrite(led01, HIGH);   digitalWrite(led02, LOW);   digitalWrite(led03, LOW);   } else if(TemperatureC<(4-AjustTheTemp)){   digitalWrite(led01, LOW);   digitalWrite(led02, LOW);   digitalWrite(led03, HIGH);  }    else if(TemperatureC<(10-AjustTheTemp)){   digitalWrite(led01, LOW);   digitalWrite(led02, HIGH);   digitalWrite(led03, LOW);      }      } /* temp lights using Attiny & LM35 */ //const int tempPin = 0; const int Temperature= 3; // declare the led pins (attiny) const int led01 = 2;   const int led02 = 1;   const int led03 = 4;  //declare the variable for the temp int temp=0;//changed to = 0? int AjustTheTemp= 0; //Declare the leds as outputs void setup() { //  Serial.begin(9600);      pinMode (led01, OUTPUT);   pinMode (led02, OUTPUT);   pinMode (led03, OUTPUT);   pinMode (Temperature, INPUT); }     // Main Program     void loop() {         // read the voltage from the temp sensor     // and change it to celsius     // temp = analogRead(Temperature);     // temp = temp * 0.48828125;        int reading = analogRead(Temperature); float voltage = reading *5; voltage /= 10; float TemperatureC = (voltage - 0.5) ; //show temp in monitor so can make changes        // Serial.print("TEMPRATURE = ");   //Serial.print(TemperatureC );   // Serial.print("*C");   // Serial.println();     //delay (1000);//delays the print to monitor                // by 1 sec   if (TemperatureC<(27-AjustTheTemp)) {   digitalWrite(led01, LOW);   digitalWrite(led02, HIGH);   digitalWrite(led03, LOW);   } else if(TemperatureC<(29-AjustTheTemp)){   digitalWrite(led01, LOW);   digitalWrite(led02, LOW);   digitalWrite(led03, HIGH);  }    else if(TemperatureC<(31-AjustTheTemp)){   digitalWrite(led01, LOW);   digitalWrite(led02, HIGH);   digitalWrite(led03, LOW);      }      }

Vertigo Lights

A few years ago I was attending a Halloween attraction where a conversation started about seeing a red skull.  We asked a few of the actors and I got the name of the attraction's special effects person.  What we were seeing was a programmable sheet of red LEDs that would flash so fast that you could only see the after image.  The F/X guy called it Vertigo Lights.  I understand the concept, but wondered if anyone has come across anything like this.  Could this be controlled by an arduino, or would a program need to be written to control all of the lights simultaneously?  I haven't been able to find anything like it in any of my searches. Any clues would be great!

LEDs Remotes...ideas and possibilities

Ive seen diffrent examples and ideas on what i want to do but well...not exactly. first off i want to do a simple blue ambent light system with a simple on and off remote...big room dont want to have to git up and cut them off...second i really like the light bar system that syncs to music...id like do use that same light system and include a sound jack or something so that same light system will blink along with my music...now ive scene them done individualy but not together...if it comes down to it there could be a switch to change between light and music modes....also my biggest problem is size....i have a large room with a almost 2 story celing in one part i want to install this whole thing along where the entire length of where the celing and walls meet...its gona be hugh.....btw i relize how bright this is gona be and i really want to build it just to open my windows and stand outside and watch it!!!!! :-) so any help would be nice......Thanks

Just picked up a strip of LEDs...need a power supply for them

I just bought these http://amzn.to/1HgdTOC by accident (One-Click buying...lol) and I figured instead of returning them and getting my money back, I could actually use them around my room. The only problem is, I'm not too sure how to actually power them. From what I understand, they require a 12V 5A power supply. Is there anything common I might have in my house that I could use to power these? If not, where can I pick one up cheap-ish and with fast shipping? Edit: forgot to mention I own a Dioder kit from IKEA, would it be possible to use the power supply from that? The label on it says 12V, but only .42A so I doubt it.

Help me build stadium lighting for my foosball table

I work at a little marketing/web agency.  The job is sweet, but the foosball is epic.  We have internal league games among the 15 of us, but we're going to go intercollegiate this winter and the foosball table need some polish.  I think some epic stadium lights would fit the bill nicely.   Here's some parameters I'd like to work within:  * They should look as close to the real thing as possible - no shortcuts when it comes to the aesthetics (Google images here). * They will probably have to hang from the ceiling. * They should be bright.  Not necessarily blinding, but brighter than average.  Definitely not feeble. * I'm thinking 2 sets hanging above either end of the table and safely above head-height.  That probably puts them about 4-6' away from the surface I want to illuminate. * We can probably spend $40-80 on materials.   * I doubt we will be doing any electrical work to accommodate these, so each one needs to run off a single, probably very long, cord.   The real crux for me here is the lighting - I'm really not familiar with lighting.  I'm sure I'm looking at LED lighting, given that I want to have many lights working from a single power source, but I'm worried that after I spread the available watts out over a large number of lights I won't be able to get the kind of intensity I'm looking for.  And I'm wondering how much I would need to spend on the kind of light that I need for this project.   I'm imagining that the frame of the light will be some kind of small diameter metal conduit.  I'm not sure what the best way of linking the conduit together would be though.. Ideas are warmly welcomed   : )  Cheers, Micah

LED Build Night at RevAmp

After having a huge success at our first Build Night at RevAmp and having many people turn up with great projects. The best out of which we found to be LED costumes as many people worked on it. We had two build nights The first day we had projects like LED Cube, LED lamps, LED flashers... and the next day we came up with an idea of making LED costumes and brought arduino into the  picture. The costumes were Bluetooth controlled and we later had a special android app developed to control the led. We had made 3 LED costumes at the end of the day. And we also practiced some cool led dance moves as the LEDs looked quite cool in the dark. After 2 days we all learnt new things and had fun with the LEDs.

Help with wiring several LEDs and power needed

So I am trying to set up a table with several LEDs (upwards of 50-75) that will almost all be wired with a switch individually, so that patterns can be created by switching on and off each of the LEDs. I know enough as to set up the switches and LEDs, but I am not sure the best way to go about powering it. I want to be able to plug it in to a wall and not use batteries. but what kind of converter/board would I need to power everthing? Thanks

DESPERATE DAMSEL! LEDs help...

Well, okay... I'm not really desperate but I am in (slight) distress-- needing someone to storm the castle of knowledge to save me from pounding my head against the walls of google-search any longer. Looking for some specific LED information. I have looked through several LED-throw-y Instructables but so far I haven't found the information I need. I am mostly electronics-retarded and so if anyone can give me the correct info I would sincerely appreciate the assistance. I just need to know the batteries/battery power/models needed to power smaller than 10mm LEDs. My project involves a very small space-- 1.8mm-3mm-5mm sized LEDs would probably be best-- I would need to know the kind of batteries I would need (least bulky and least number of batteries I could utilize for each size 1.8mm-3mm-5mm) and how many I would need for each single LED to operate effectively. Also-- is there any real concern of a fire hazard with such LEDs housed in an acrylic/urethane and resin container or would the output of the LED be such that I wouldn't have to have concerns of fire (or melting in the case or urethane/acrylic/resin) ? (Sorry if this question seems dumb, but again I stress how electronics-retarded I really am lol). Furthermore, if the LEDs had vellum or translucent paper covering them to diffuse the light-- would this additionally create any fire-hazard? The housing will probably vary between 14mm-20mm  for the LED with the batteries able to sit outside the LED-housing. I appreciate any assistance in getting the information I need and offer many thanks in advance for any helpful replies!

What 4.5 million LEDs looks like

Over in Japan, 4.5 millions LEDs have been lit up for a holiday fantasia that runs through March 8. To see all these LEDs color cycling must be amazing to see in person.As a matter of fact, I'll probably be out in Japan next year, but not early enough to catch this.An estimated 4.5 million light-emitting diodes offer an amazing spectacle at the Nabana no Sato theme park in Kuwana, Mie Prefecture, on Saturday. The annual winter light show is scheduled to run until March 8. Kyodo. This year’s theme is flowers. The water illumination is out of this world. Here the beautiful sound of the river with vivid color changing-the-art LED technology enables a production of 64 billion colors. The rapidly changing colors actually look more like the flow of the river in front of our eyes. The pond is located in the heart of the Village but can be seen from all over the place.

Rave Helmet Led delima

Okay, so I just finished making my custom rave helmet made of a really sturdy form of geometric origami made out of triangles. kinda hart to explain but I'll post pictures if need be. What I want to do now is wire up Leds to the helmet all over it. My problem is: A: the spacing of the leds would make it impossible  to use a solid led board, I would need to have them wired in some sort of series B: I'm terrible with diy electronics and have never done anything with arduino. I really want to be able to set up the leds in a way that they can be programmed to flash, or light up in a cool way, or react to music. So i figure my best bet is to have some kind of premade Arduino board and power supply that I can buy pre made without having to make my own arduino board because its way too advanced for me. Thats where I fall off, I'm capable of wiring the leds, but anything more advanced than that I'm pretty lost on. Do you guys have any suggestions for products or tutorials to help me out?

Arduino on off switch for LEDS

Hi All, I'm about to do a project that involves using Arduino to create an LED 'chase' effect. However I want the 'chase' to be triggered when someone removes an object from the switch. For example the lights would be on and running with a small rock (or similar) holding down a switch which then goes into the off position when the weight is removed. I can create a chase and I can operate the switch but I need help in writing the code that will combine these two features in to one event. Any suggestions, esp help with code will be warmly welcomed. Regards, Frank

Simple Resistance Question

I am wiring some LEDs in series-parallel using a 9v battery. The schematic I've been looking at online as a reference shows resistors being used but doesn't say what size. Here is the layout: |-- LED -- LED -- LED -- resistor?--| |-- LED -- LED -- LED -- resistor?--| |-- LED -- LED -- LED -- resistor?--| |--9v-----------------------------------------| I assume it's a simple calculation but I haven't worked with this stuff in a few years. Thanks in advance.
