Music LED Light Box
Myoriginal LED light cubegot allot of reactions. Some of them where about making the LED's react to music. This did sound very interesting and I found someinstructables on here.Unfortunately I found it very hard to understand those instructables. In my opinion they weren't explained well enough and even some circuits weren't correct.That's why I though I build one and make an instructable of it. I tried to make this instructable so easy, that everyone with or without any experience can make one!If you make one, don't forget to share your end result photos and movies with us.Below you'll see the end result of my Music LED Light Box.The movie is shot with my Canon Digital Camera, in the dark. My camera can't handle the fast switching between light and dark very well. In reality the effect is evennicer then on the video.Before people go asking who's music or what songs these are in this video, these beats are made by my brother. :)You can visit hisYouTube channelfor more information and songs.
step 1:
Materials & Tools
To make this Music LED Light Box you can use many different things and build it different ways.In this instructable I'll explain how I made it, a very simple way.
Materials
- 12v Adapter
(a battery can be used as well)
- 3.5 jack headphone cable.- tip31 transistor
(this is the key to the whole project)
-
$0.50
- 5mm LED's
(the color or amount is totally up to you, 1 LED per 3v. I used 12v, so 4 LEDs)
-
$0.28
- A4 acrylic sheet - 3mm thick
(also known as 'plexiglass')
-
$2.00
- Fine sandpaper (I used 400) -
$1.00
- Electrical WireIf you see a price above, that means I bought it. The rest I just ripped of some old junk. The 12v Adapter was from an old wireless headphone and the 3.5 jack plug isfrom another old headphone.
Tools
-Jigsaw
(also a Jeweler Saw can be used. But that's really hard to get straight lines)
- Glue Gun
(hot glue, other glue to glue acrylic is possible)
- Drilling tool- Solder tool
(optional)
- Pen

Ones you've got this stuff you're ready to begin!
Image Notes
1. 12v Adapter. Be sure to read step 5 to find out more about this or any other adapter!2. Ripped this from the switch as well. It's the part where the adapter goes in to and a toggle switch. Eventually I didn't use the toggle switch.3. 5mm LED's - Blue - Water Clear4. TIP31 transistor. To be precise, this is a TIP31c transistor. But from what I've read on the internet, a TIP31a and TIP31b can be used as well.5. 3.5 Jack plug. Who doesn't have old headphones lying around :)6. Sandpaper - 4007. A4 Acrylic sheet 3mm - Also known as 'Plexiglass'.
step 2:
Preparing the box
From the acrylic sheet we're going to build the box.
1. Draw out the plates for the box on the acrylic sheet ( 
photo 1
 ). My longer plates are 15cm x 5cm. And the squares are 5cm x 5cm 
.
Of course you can use any size for a box you want.2. Use the jig saw to cut the plates from the acrylic sheet. Be sure to do this as perfect as you can. Because all plates need to line up nice with each other ( 
photo 2 
 ).If the plates don't turn out to be equal, you can sand the sides till they all fit nice.3. Get the drilling tool and use a drill bit that is the same size as the thickness of the headphones cord ( 
photo 3 
 ). Then drill another hole for the adapter to go though.When you're drilling, do this very carefully! You don't want to hurry, else you might put too much pressure on it and break the plate.
