It’s no secret that LEDs make everything better. In this episode of Weekend Projects, Kipkay shows us how to build Eric Chu’s LED yo-yo from MAKE Volume 22. It’s an easy project, even for folks without electronics know-how. You can watch the video and download the project PDF. I want to make ten and throw a yo-yo lights-out disco party!
