LED Puzzle Box: Play

Light Emitting Diodes,

Such an interesting component that yields some of the best creations imaginable. From LED throwies to LED sculptures and costumes. I even came up with a saying for Maker Faire, LOLROTFL, Lots of LEDs Rapidly Oscillating Throughout Faire Land. Puzzles and games are also great, providing endless enjoyment for all.

Today we are going to make a puzzle game that uses LOL and it’s quite fun to try to work out a strategy for playing. You’re going to need a transparent container to house all the LEDs in, so you can either pick one up, or design one yourself with a 3D printer and transparent filament. If you 3D print one, you can go nuts with different shapes and designs for your container. I will show some examples after I tell you about the basics of how to make one of these puzzles.

So get your LED collection out and tell your family that game night is coming up, because we are going to make an addicting toy that will provide entertainment for hours and will get some competition going!
