Feurig etched a well-planned fish-shaped circuit to hosts a slew of pink LEDs as scales. Great work – though it would be nice to see all those lovely copper traces exposed in the final product.

A lot of work goes into designing circuitry and etching your own provides an excellent opportunity for self expression. When planning your next board, consider how those lines can serve an aesthetic purpose in addition to their primary function – you may end up wanting a transparent enclosure or perhaps none at all.

We’ve covered some similar ‘illuminated circuits‘ in the past, for some examples you can even make yourself, check out –
