LED Art instructions featured Instructables

I just posted instructions for building my LED Art Kit at Instructables.com, where it is currently a "Featured Instructable."

This Instructable is based on the instructions that accompany the LED Art Kits available on Make Magazine's Maker Shed. It can be used with the kits, but also includes information for finding the parts yourself.

Poor Man's Light Tent

Here's a quick-and-dirty light tent I assembled. I needed to take some pictures of a project that weren't completely awful, so I took the lid of a shoebox, cut a window in it, and taped a piece of velum over the window. I used a couple clamps as "legs."

LED Art Kits available!

I've finally got more LED Art Kits available, through Make Magazine's online store, the Maker Shed, for a mere $15. This is the kit version of my LED Art pieces, which display shifting patterns of light and color on a framed, translucent screen. See this older post for more info and pics.

LED Art Kits

I'll have these new LED Art Kits (Flickr set) ready for the upcoming Austin Maker Faire (Oct. 18th + 19th), where I'll be doing demos and workshops for these (as well as Blinkybugs).

They're really easy to make, and use color-changing RGB LEDs to cast slowly shifting patterns of light on the translucent "canvas."

They should be available for sale online soon.

DIY Blinkybug Kits

Because some of the parts are hard to come by in small quantities, I'm now offering blinkybug kits on my etsy store. This is for the solder-free version that I designed for the 2007 Maker Faire. A how-to is here.

The kits I'm currently offering contain all the parts needed for 4 bugs! If you're interested in larger quantities just drop me a line.
