LED Hula Hoops: You Know, for Kids.

Here’s something that’s sure to draw crowds the next time you feel the need to draw attention to yourself. This dizzying show of colored light is produced by a rapidly spinning Hula Hoop, packed with LED lighting.

LED Hula Hoop

Handcrafted by Etsy contributor Schablien, the LED Hula Hoop works its magic with 18 super-bright LEDs embedded into the hoop. Half of the lights change colors, while the other half are fixed tones, producing a rainbow of hues as you swing your hips to-and-fro.

The hoop is powered by a rechargeable battery pack which should give you 8 to 10 hours of illumination before it needs a charge. You can find the light-up hoop over on Schlabein’s Etsy shop for $195.

In the words of Alvin (of Chipmunk fame), “Me, I want a Hula Hoop.”

[$195 too pricey for you? If you’re feeling more adventurous, you can build your own basic version of the LED Hula Hoop with about $15 in parts by following this step-by-step tutorial over on Instructables.]

    Your telling me it’s expensive. Making it yourself is going to be way cheaper.

    The instructables version is cheap but it looks nothing like the one on etsy or the one the pros use. That one is black with only a few small LEDs.
    If you want to make your own good looking LED hoop you can follow the instructions on ProdMod or buy the kit of parts. It sells from $39-$59 depending on size and LED options. It takes about 2 hours to build with simple tools, and it doesnt even require any soldering.
    It is also collapsable to about half its diameter which is great for traveling.
    This one uses a Lithium Battery, but a rechargeable kit will be available soon for you to easily upgrade to later.
