DIY Mini LED Xmas tree

Axeman writes in –

“This is my personal solution to the universal problem “How can I have a christmas tree AND three cats in the same house?” – A small tree (a little more than 6 inches high), an omnipresent PIC microcontroller that pseudo-randomly drives 8 high power LEDs, 4 rechargeable AA batteries, a little box as base, and that’s an art attack!”Link.

Schematic and HEX included.

    You use too thin wires for this project. You should use at least 8awg wires…

    Sure! The next version of the tree, with 500watts halogen bulbs and a diesel generator, will have 4mm diameter wires. :-P

    Then don’t forget to hang up fire extinguishers on the Xmas tree… the red ones will be nice I think :P
