Airfield LED Kit for Pinball Playfields: Flippin’ Awesome

Jeremy Williams and his friend invented Airfield, an LED kit that makes mounted or hung playfields come alive.

Engagement Ring with LEDs: You Light Up My Life. And Finger.

Engagement Ring with LEDs: You Light Up My Life. And Finger.
We’ve seen a ring box that lights up, but this one’s even better. Engineer/jeweler/lover Ben Kokes made an engagement ring with LEDs for his now fiancé Julie. As if making an engagement ring wasn’t awesome enough, Kokes also made it so the LEDs would light when he’s near his fiancé. Because he couldn’t fit a battery on the ring, Kokes designed the LEDs to be powered using an inductive charger.

Lumigrids LEDs Map Bicycle Terrain: Pilot Your Bike Like a Fighter Plane!
If there’s something that you need to be careful with, it’s definitely your bike when you’re riding late at night. I’ve had one accident where I woke up in the hospital, and I was on a cycling path!

Cylon Jeep, or KITT’s Long Lost Cousin?

Cylon Jeep, or KITT’s Long Lost Cousin?
One of the things you learn in the world of geekdom is that any time you slap some horizontally-chasing red LEDs into something, it’s instantly transformed into Cylon technology. But I always thought if you did it to the front of a vehicle, it’s a reference to Knight Rider’s K.I.T.T.

Mercedes S-Class Is the First Car without any Incandescent Light Bulbs
These days, it’s not uncommon for automotive manufacturers to use LEDs to replace light bulbs for some of the lights on vehicles. This is particularly common with taillights. However, until now, all of the vehicles out there still use incandescent light bulbs for some needs, particularly in the headlights and interior.

Watching this video of this guy making his own model of the Starship Enterprise D – then making it fly – is truly inspirational. It is a fully functional R/C model. It’s even illuminated by super bright LEDs and fiber optics.

Opal ADAM Gets LED Starlight Sky Option: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Car
GM-owned automotive manufacturer Opel hasn’t sold cars in the United States in decades. However, in Europe, Opel has been selling vehicles continuously for quite a long time. One of the vehicles that Opel offers that I’ve never heard of is the subcompact Opel ADAM.

Champagne Cork Darth Vader: Let’s Toast to the Dark Side

Champagne Cork Darth Vader: Let’s Toast to the Dark Side
The thing I love about the intersection of geekdom and art is that we end up with some really ingenious and non-traditional mediums for creativity. For example, what was once an innocent champagne cork has been transformed into the ultimate evil – Darth Vader. DIYer SJ Roth took an ordinary cork and embellished it with markers, clay, fabric, foam rubber, and even a little LED lightsaber to create the cutest little Vader you’ll see today. You can learn how to make your own Cork Vader over on Instructables.

Lava lamp? Pfff. YouTuber bfayer made a life-a-lamp. His calls his invention the Liquid Lifebar. It reflects to the amount of health or mana of his character in Terraria in real time. If he has a lot of health, the lamp’s water level is high and it glows a healthy green.

Watch remote-controlled jet planes is cool. Watching this LED covered R/C jet plane fly at night is a really beautiful thing. I don’t remember seeing any planes in the TRON movies, but I imagine a TRON plane would look something like this.

MoodLights LED Outdoor Lights Add a Splash of Color to Your Garden
Those little LED garden lights are a nice way to add a little illumination to your outdoor paths and walkways. However, most of them emit the same boring white light. Not the LED lights from MoodLights.

Nixie/LED Clock Combines Old School and New School Lighting Tech

Nixie/LED Clock Combines Old School and New School Lighting Tech
I’m a sucker for the warm orange glow of Nixie tubes. There’s just something just so retro-modern about the way they look – all I can think of is the technology in the movie Brazil. I just stumbled across a really cool Nixie tube clock which accents the tubes with modern LEDs, adding even more to the look.
