Instructables LED contest


Instructables is having another “Get the LED Out” contest, this time sponsored by Monkeylectric:

LEDs are some of the best things ever. They provide colorful light, barely use any power, and are easy to learn how to use. We love them and would love to see what cool projects you can make using them. So we teamed up with the mad LED scientists a Monkeylectric to bring you a new contest: Get the LED Out in ’09!

The rules are simple. To enter, the Instructable must involve LEDs. That’s it. It can be a part of a much bigger project or it can be focused on a cool use of LEDs. Just be sure to document it well with clear photos and text and show us what you can do!

The grand prize winner will receive a set of four Monkey Lights from Monkeylectric. With those installed, any bike will instantly become a beautiful light show at night! Six first prize winners will win one Monkey Light which provides a lot of light to ride safer in style.

Contest deadline is June 14.
