DIY Cyberpunk LED Eyes: I Ask for This

by Lambert Varias

Want to make a Shadowrun, Deus Ex or any cyberpunk or sci-fi costume? Adaruit contributor Tully Jagoe has a great accessory that you might want to replicate. Tully made a head-mounted array of small LEDs that make his eyes – or whatever part of your face you put them over – appear to be made of light.

The project is fairly simple, though you need to be good at soldering to pull it off. It involves attaching SMD LEDs and a battery module on a length of enameled copper wire.

You can use any LED color(s), and place them anywhere you over your face. Just make sure that the wire fits over your head properly.

Because the LEDs project light away from your eyes, they shouldn’t obscure your vision too much.
