FlexLED 2.0 Uses Flexible PCBs for POV Display
Persistence of vision displays have been around for quite a while, and use LED light and rapid motion to create an optical illusion that acts like a display that can show anything from words to animated animals and people. While there are a ton of POV displays on the market, others prefer to design their own, including engineer Carl Bugeja, who is looking to improve on his original FlexLED. His original design featured a single LED on a flexible PCB, which was actuated back and forth using a magnet to create the POV effect.For his FlexLED 2.0, Bugeja is creating a larger version with more LEDs, which will use a pattern of traces that make up a pair of coils that interact with magnetic fields. The original only used one coil, but it only needed to produce the POV effect using a single LED. By using the right amount of current, the flexible PCB can flap up and down when in the presence of a neodymium magnet.The FlexLED 2.0 features 24 RGB LEDs, along with an LED driver, an H-bridge to drive the coils, and a microcontroller that controls both and communicates with the electronics via UART. Bugeja took to Altium Designer to design the PCB and place all the hardware components neatly before sending it over to a manufacturer. He also created a 3D-printed case this time to keep the electronics secure and also houses the magnet that actuates the flexible PCB. While the FlexLED 2.0 isn't yet completed, you can see Bugeja's design process in the video above·RELATED QUESTIONI didn't get Google Glass Explorer Edition.

Subodh Gupta Is Back in Mumbai After a Gap of Nine
Studio One of Famous Studio Mahalaxmi has transformed yet again into an art space, this time housing Subodh Gupta's latest solo, Anahad/Unstruck. The show comprises four paintings and four installations, all featuring various metal components - specifically Gupta's favoured alloy, steel - installed in two cavernous film studios. However, for many in the city used to Gupta's trademark enmeshing of pots and pans and other steel utensils found in Indian homes, his current experiments with form and structure offer a whole new world. Shifting focus Gupta's last solo in the city, Start.Stop in 2007, at the erstwhile Bodhi Art's Kalaghoda space, played off scale against the white cube space of the gallery. The "sushi belt" work, with sushi conveyer belts stacked with tiffin boxes, created the impression of a constantly moving city. The size and motion together made it an impressive memory of an improbable object. At Famous Studio this month, everything is an improbable object, but in the movie studio location, each work, be it installation or painting, demands a starring role in your memories. More importantly, each work shows you a shift in Gupta's interests, politics and artistic form. "For me, it's just a progression of Subodh's work," says Peter Nagy, director of Nature Morte Delhi, the gallery that has brought the show to Mumbai. Nagy, of course, as Gupta's gallerist, has been around the artist and his work for the last decade. And a lot of what Gupta has been up to in that decade can be seen here. But one of Nagy's challenges was to find a space the artist could fall in love with. After much reconnaissance, in August this year, Gupta settled on Famous Studio, a space Nature Morte used last in 2014 for The Science of Speed, a group show that included artists Aditya Pande, Asim Waqif, Rajorshi Ghosh and Vishal Dar. Subodh Gupta, Birth of a Star (2016), stainless steel, steel, led light, 120 x 120 x 130 inches.Comment on our times "I like unconventional spaces," Gupta tells us of his decision to use a film studio for his show. "Space is always a challenge, but for me and the nature of my work, this kind of space suits me." Unconventional spaces definitely suit Gupta. His work at the first Kochi Muziris Biennale, titled What does the vessel contain, that the river will not, challenged the large and otherwise overwhelming room it was given at the biennale's Aspinwall House venue. We are also reminded that Continua - the gallery Gupta works with in Italy - is a repurposed movie theatre.Unconventional is certainly a word that describes the space at Famous Studio. The walls are grey, the floors are stripped, the ceiling crisscrossed with lighting catwalks and beams to hold up lights. As you enter the exhibition, you see a large, very tightly lit metal container. As you go closer you notice the container is created of blocks made of pressed and fused kitchen utensils. As you go even closer, you notice there are chinks in the container stuffed with pieces of brightly coloured cloth. Often, a cloth piece will be pulled away to reveal a chink from which an eye looks furtively at the viewer. Then, it's gone. Rising 11 feet, 'Aakash, Pataal, Dharti' can have multiple meanings, but there's one that really stands out if you've been reading the news for the last few years: migration. It's not a new concern for Gupta, who, hailing from Bihar has seen and spoken of economic migration within India (and the movements from India to the Gulf and so on). But the form also speaks of refugees, illegal immigrants, and the challenges undertaken to escape an increasingly politically and environmentally unstable world. Thankfully, Gupta does not attempt the conceit of making the viewer to feel like the migrant. Rather, he wants you to feel for the migrant, and think of the impetus for people to travel in extreme conditions - move heavens and earth - in their search of somewhere better to plant roots in. "You put the bird in a cage, or put the bird in a forest. In both places, the bird is the same, the difference is the environment it is in," Gupta tells us. He's talking about his work in various spaces, but the thought stays with us as we view this work and remember that underneath our outward differences, we're all human. Subodh Gupta, In this vessel lay the seven seas; in it, too, the nine hundred thousand stars (III) (2016), oil paint and digital print on aluminum, LED lights, 144 x 96 x 2 inches.Channelling anger For many at the opening, the constant thudding of a chain from the height of the light catwalks harks back to UK-based art giant Anish Kapoor's show in the city, in a suburban film studio. The chain is part of a work where it rises and falls into a copper receptacle. But Gupta's Krodh is different. While Kapoor's work was timed to the hour where people almost ceremonially gathered at prescribed times, Gupta creates an almost three-minute loop of the chain being picked up by a magnet and then dropped back in with a thud. Gupta last used the chain in his turn set-designing a Bolshoi Ballet performance. The work speaks to Gupta's increasing frustration with the world, and finds response in that of many others viewing it. A part of you almost wishes the receptacle would shatter, and the rise and fall of the chain stops. In conversation, Gupta speaks of the numerous political situations that build the feeling of anger and helplessness in a citizen: war, rising fundamentalism, the rise of American President-Elect Trump and of course, homegrown issues such as the answer to end all corruption, demonitisation. It makes you think of the nature of anger, and specifically political anger, in the time of social media. It's that increasing feeling of exasperation, frustration, helplessness and sometimes all out confusion that many of us feel today. Subodh Gupta, In this vessel lay the seven seas; in it, too, the nine hundred thousand stars (I) (2016), oil paint and digital print on aluminum, LED lights, 144 x 96 x 2 inches.Different mediums Interestingly, the show is full of performance, but for once, it's mostly the objects on display that are performing. The paintings on aluminium - a series of four titled 'In this vessel lay the seven seas; in it, too, the nine hundred thousand stars' (taken from a poem by Kabir), Gupta uses oil paint on digitally printed aluminium sheets installed with LED lights. In these paintings he elevates a simple cooking pan to the cradle of all creation - from looking like the nucleus of a cell, or the imaginings of the big bang, the work speaks to Gupta's interest in the metaphysical. How does the universe's constant motion affect us and what lessons do we learn from it? The paintings are also well-made objects, with the technical aspects of digital printing and fitting in the LED done so well, the back of the work is as exciting as its front. The title of the show comes from a work comprising six steel sheets polished to reflection. Anahad/Unstruck uses a transducer to periodically induce vibration in the six steel sheets till they create a thunderous sound as you stand in a cavernous space with a giant death-star like steel sculpture surrounded by the aforementioned sheets. The sculpture is 'Birth of a Star'. Made in Korea, the work is a large, polished sphere caught in the midst of binary fission. The split is made clearer by a bright LED light. This scientific 'performance' is fascinating. When the steel sheets vibrate, the images of everything reflected distort, and looking at the sculpture amidst this does make you feel like you're in the centre of creation. It makes for an experience not to be missed. What is interesting about this exhibition is it uses elaborate gestures and overwhelming sizes, sound and light to recreate what could be really quiet moments in your mind: the formation of an idea, the internal terror of losing a home, to the strength required to search for another, to the knowledge that change requires an unending reservoir of hope. Gupta speaks of artists historically engaging with politics through their art. There's Picasso's Guernica, or Goya's commentary, including the series The Disasters of War, or Gupta's contemporary, Chilean artist Alfredo Jaar, whose work constantly engages the politics of our times. "I don't start with the intention of making political art, but somewhere in the process, it gets mixed in," says Gupta. You cannot deny (socio-political) situations, and as an individual you have to do what you can. And you've to do your work, no? So it gets mixed in."The author is a freelance writer Images courtesy: Subodh Gupta Studio and Nature Morte Gallery

The Hottest Questions About Led Light
Considering that led light may still be new to many people, we provide ten common questions and answers about led light for you to get started.1. when a led light bulb glass breakes?problematic subject. query using yahoo or google. that might help!2. How do you turn off the LED light next to the webcam in an HP entertainment notebook?It skill that the Theftlock II gadget built into the producing facility radio is lively. Theftlock is a GM anti-theft gadget that locks the radio applications if that's utilized in a various vehicle than the single wherein it replaced into initially put in. The gadget on your radio is progressed sufficient that it may study the vehicle's VIN for the duration of the suggestions bus gadget. meaning it would paintings effective on your vehicle, whether you lose battery skill for a whilst, yet wo not paintings in the different vehicle till that's reset via a GM broking. in short, it is not something you will could be hectic approximately till you p.c. to circulate your production facility radio right into a various vehicle.3. Does an LED light bulb convert AC to DC?I assume by bulb you mean a 110 to 240VAC mains rated light.Many of these lights contain a current source power supply consisting of a full wave bridge rectifier and an integrated circuit containing a power MOSFET for handling the power switching. Typically these look like those found in the ic device bp2832a data sheet (do a Google search).4. Safety practices for 5-volt 150-watt power supply for dot-programmable RGB LED light ribbonsUnfortunately, enclosures are tricky when the equipment needs to be ventilated. The first rule of electrical is that anything that touches mains power must have a proper UL listing, CSA, ETL or equivalent. US-OSHA keeps a list, and everyone else dogpiles on and cites it rather than maintain their own list. Your tax dollars at work. A RU listing (UL component listing) is not that. RU component listings shortcut a UL equipment listing because the component is pre-certified. And CE is definitely not that; it is a junk mark gleefully faked by the Chinese. The rare Chinese maker who is able to stick a UL listing on their item proudly does, with file number, and they do not use CE at all; no need to fake. I do not know the Canadian code requirement for approved (read: CSA-approved) items, but the NEC section is 110.2. It's on the first page. I have excellent 24V GE power supplies for LED lighting that mount in a fluorescent ballast form-factor. Still need enclosures, but designed to play in a confined space. The go-to in the "Chinese, but UL listed" department is Meanwell, and their stuff is sold at Mouser, Digi-Key, the usual. Some of their supplies have the UL or ETL listing instead of the component-level RU mark. There is no Code legal way to bring hot and neutral to open, uncovered screw terminals on the equipment. That is one of the 100 details that the Chinese fakirs completely ignore in Code. This might be allowed in an RU component. I suspect on the UL-listed Meanwell supplies, they will have an IEC inlet or a proper cover for the 120V splice areas. Another important thing required in mains code is complete separation of mains and low voltage power. Bringing them onto the same terminal block is a nope.5. on my hp pavilion dv7-6143cl laptop led light on touchpad is not on?try fn space. you want the back light to come back on right?6. How "bright" are 2 "bulb" LED light fixtures in a garage?Depends on the lumen output of the LED bulbs you are considering. I will tell you this: LED lights are considerably brighter than the standard fluorescent bulb7. How much energy does an LED light bulb produce?It depends on what kind u brought8. can one use a dusk till dawn switch with a led light bulb?Oh yeah, and probably one of the most fun nights I've had. Drinking and going to the club down in Myrtle Beach, SC. Under age at the time so that's what made it more exciting, and ran into these girls from Ireland on a foreign exchange student/work visa. Partied and danced with them all night long till the place shut down, then we took the party to their hotel(if you catch my drift). Continued to drink, and went swimming in the ocean. All this lasted till about 8 in the morning. Needles to say, a fun night/morning.

Genaray Powerbank 64 Pocket LED Light REVIEW | Mac Sources
Genaray Powerbank 64 Pocket LED9Perfect little fill light for on the goSince I've been carrying a camera bag with me daily, I've been trying to get the overall weight of the bag down to the most minimal amount possible. I have my camera body and essential lens along with a flash, but sometimes it's good to have another fill light on-hand for those 'just in case' moments. This pocket LED from Genaray is a good example of one of those types of lights.DETAILSThe Genaray PB-64 Powerbank 64 Pocket LED Light is a bi-color SMD LED panel. It's rechargeable with a built-in 1400 mAh Li-ion battery included. The light can be adjusted from 10% to 100% in 1% increments. In addition to the standard brightness adjustments, the light has a booster mode that provides an additional 30% output for a total of 130% brightness. This mode will only hold the 130% brightness level for 1 minute. The light has a built-in heat sink and an LCD screen that displays the brightness level. The light has a built-in 1/4-20 mount and comes with the mounting clamp, diffuser head, mini tripod, ball head, USB cable, and a travel pouch.SPECSLED Chip Type: SMDLED Count: 64 (32 Tungsten, 32 Daylight)Beam Angle: 120°Color Temperature: 3200 to 5600 K in 100 K incrementsCRI: >96TLCI: >96Dimming: 10% to 100% in 1% incrementsDisplay: LCDHousing Material: MetalLight Intensity @ 3 ft.: 200 lxExpected Lamp Life: 50,000 hr.Power Input Connector: USB-CDimensions: 2.6 × 2.6 × 0.75 in.Weight: 5.4 oz.Battery Capacity: 1400 mAhOperating Voltage: 5VDC Input Power: 5V/1A (minimum)Max Power Consumption: 5WUSER EXPERIENCEThere are lots of different types of these pocket LED lights and they do come in quite handy. What makes the Genaray stand out is the high-capacity, rechargeable battery. A 1400 mAh battery is quite nice on a light like this. Genaray claims that users can get approximately 1 hour of working time with it and while I haven't used it that long consecutively, I've been impressed with the working time I get from the light.The LED does a great job of providing fill light. I really like the LCD display that shows the brightness level and the easy to use controls on the side of the light. I do think the light is a little on the heavy side. That's probably due to the heavy metal body that the light has. I have another pocket LED that has 198LEDs and is about twice the size of the PB-64, but it only weighs 1 ounce more. Genaray did make it very easy to snap the diffusion cover on and be able to remove it easily if needed and I love the travel pouch that comes with the LED. It's just the right size for all the accessories.One big issue I have with this light is its name - Genaray Powerbank 64 Pocket LED Light. Now, according to Genaray, the light is part of the "Powerbank Series," but aside from the internal battery, there is no charging taking place with this light. There is a version of this light that acts as a power bank for external devices, but this model does not. The two models share the user manual, but I really don't understand why this light is part of the 'powerbank series' if it doesn't provide an output charge.CONCLUSIONIt's important to have all the proper equipment with you when you travel or visit locations for shoots. It's equally important to have a gear bag that isn't going to weigh you down. This pocket LED from Genaray does a good job of providing strong fill light for a reasonable price.For more details, visit GenarayOriginally published at on February 20, 2020·RELATED QUESTIONI didn't get Google Glass Explorer Edition.

Related Questions of Led Light
Do you want to know about led light? Here are some frequently asked questions.1. Hi can you guide me about led light manufacturers in Turkey?I wonder where you are,you would better choose other LED lighting manufacturer instead of led light manufacturers in Turkey, there are many quality LED lighting suppliers in different countries and regions,including Philips lighting and Osram lighting in Europe and Panasonic and Toshiba Lighting in Japan and NVC and Foshan lighting in China, all of which is generally superior to other small brands, but prices tend to be higher than others' , what we need is relatively inexpensive but high-quality LED lighting products. As a designer engaging in design and improvement of indoor and outdoor LED lighting for nearly 10 years I have some additional advices, we are certainly dealing with some LED lighting business , LED lighting R & D in Japan and Europe 's core technology is definitely leader than that of China , but the LED lighting product packaged is inferior to those packed in China , there are also a number of excellent lighting business with quality lighitng products in China , delivery timely and satisfactory after-sales assured , and we have cooperated with some of China's brand lighting business , but the price of which are far higher than peers' so that we can not stand , and later we chose a Chinese medium-sized LED lighting suppliers, their LED lighting products through quality certification is the same as the brand LED lighting business, it is worth mentioning that they known as the most reasonable prices and waterproof and dustproof,moverover the thermal performance of high power LED floodlight and other outdoor LED lighting is much higher than that of other similar products.2. why will my trane furnace turn on but will not blow hot air?Sound like you furnace is tripping on lock out. If your somewhat handy you might get luck and try this. Remove furnace panel Locate circuit board Look for LED Light (you may have to hold door switch button in to test) If the LED light is blinking, count the number of blinks. There is a ever slight pause in the blink. So double check your count. With you count look on the back side of furnace panel and locate fault code chart. That will point you in the right direction. And you can repost what you find. If it clicking that tells me that probably the pressure switch is either A bad or B. See the Rubber tube, it goes to the pressure switch then connects to a nipple to a small motor (that the inducer) with a metal paper clip bent straight, remove the rubber tube, at the nipple. Poke the paper clip in the hole of the nipple. If there is any resistance, keep poking till its free. Reattach the hose, put the panels back on and see if it will light. Also, check your limit switches. They are also inside. Round with 2 wires, you may have 3 or 4 of the, If you see a small red button push that on all of them. That should reset them. Again test for operation.3. My 03 cadillac deville tail light is out so i had to buy the whole assembly because its a LED light?Definitely check your wires, bulb sockect or maybe your brake light switch if there is one. Something could be loose or burnt out4. I need help getting an LED light strip to work?Get an old PC power supply !! It has DC 12V output, Connect the green and black wire it will turn on the power supply,and the yellow wire will output the 12V DC black wire is the ground,Then you know how to connect, OK?5. Can I use LED light bulb on my 3-way lighting fixture?You are right, 3-way led bulbs are not available. Yet. But they will be soon. If you buy a 50 watt equivalent led bulb, it will work in your 3-way fixture. The only problem will be that you will have to turn (or pull) the switch twice to turn it on and twice to turn it off.6.

Team Omega : Let's Light Up the Place with Our LED Light Heatmap Prototype!
Sprint 1 recapDuring our previous sprint, we conducted research about the students and the smart building to get a general idea of what kind of problems students are facing and how a smart building could solve the students' pain points. The most common problem was that students struggle with finding available workplaces within the campus.We brainstormed about concepts and main directional goals which were: 1. A heatmap representation with LED lights.2. VR with a 3D model of one of the HvA buildings.Sprint 2As with every sprint, we started with a sprint planning where we set our goals and deliverables.Our general (sprint) goal was: "How can we provide the HvA Students with relevant data to improve their campus experience? How can we make them feel happy, welcome and comfortable?"Each sprint, we narrow down the scope of the general (sprint) goal, so our 2nd sprint goal is:"How to improve the campus experience of HvA students by showing them the available spaces in the buildings?"Our feedback from sprint 1 was that we were too focused on what we would like to make, rather than considering the needs of the user. So, we needed to take a step back to get to know the students better through in-depth interviews.Since we brainstormed during the 1st sprint about different concepts, it was time to realize one of the concepts and create a better picture of who we are making the product for. We also want to look at similar smart campus projects for inspiration.Keeping that in mind, our deliverables for this sprint are:Gain insights by researching about similar smart campus and smart building projects.2. Create personas based on in-depth interviews.3. Find opportunities by clustering user data (e.g. through in-depth interviews).4. Get a better understanding of the user pain points.5. Create a prototype that shows the heatmap data.Gain insight by researching about similar smart campus and smart building projectsFloris researched about Islelabs Flows and Tidy Street Project. The first one is a business intelligence platform that can help you understand your visitor's footfall patterns. It collects anonymous data to measure how many people visit your venues and at which times. This gives you an understanding of how long, how often, and where your visitors spend their time at your locations. The second project is about showing people who live at the Tidy Street. This is a street in Brighton with a high energy usage. The university of Brighton decided to change the behaviour of people living on the street by showing how much energy the houses uses.Jessica researched about the Smart Campus Tools 2.0 book that compares smart campuses of different universities in the Netherlands as well as different universities worldwide. A few problems and recommendations could be used to improve HvA's Facility Service's app and/or we could keep them in mind while making our prototype.To start with, the most common problems all universities face are the fact that students complain about the lack of space while universities think they provide enough space. The reasons are because:- Spaces on the campus are claimed but not used. A room is reserved for meetings which do not occur 20% of the time.- During specific times, specific locations are overcrowded, although there is room elsewhere. For example: during exam weeks the library is overcrowded while other study spaces remain unused.Now, there are some recommendations to solve these problems, these are:- Increasing the interactivity between tools and users: This is based on the development of an app that enables users to book a meeting room based on their proximity to the room.For example: if you want to identify overbooking of rooms, you can use an app that punishes or rewards users for their good behavior. There are similar apps out there where users are stimulated to live a healthier life by taking the stairs instead of elevators. Within the app, they can compete with colleagues to see who's using the stairs the most and therefore, living the healthiest life.- Using multiple sensors/data to gain more insights in the use of space:For instance, the TU Eindhoven uses infrared sensors that connect with the lightning to detect presence in a room to see if the booked room is being used.2. Create personas based on in-depth interviewsBased on several interviews with students, Prachi created 2 personas and mapped out the user pain points, while Floris clustered the user data to find opportunities for us to work with.These are the personas that Prachi created.The students' main pain points were:- Students not knowing where the available spaces are within the building, so they just go home to study. What the HvA wants is to keep students on the campus as long as possible. So, they're trying to improve the study spaces and host events. The problem is that students don't know about these events, so they leave early anyways.- Another problem was about safety. Students don't want to carry their bags around. That's why they usually sit at places with familiar faces, so when they got to leave for a second to go to the toilet for example, they can leave their belongings on the table.3. Find opportunities by clustering user dataFloris visualized the user pain points and categorized them by interview question. We still need to do a dot voting session on which problem we find the most important to work on.4. Get a better understanding of the user pain points.The picture below shows the visualisation of the user pain points.5. Create a prototype that shows the heatmap data.As the head of development, Max mostly worked on the prototype with LED light strips and Arduinos. He managed to load a heatmap picture, which then gets divided into grids. Each grid calculates the most dominant colour. This colour (RGB value) gets saved to a database that is connected to the Arduino. The Arduino reads the database colours and displays them on the LED light strips accordingly.We also experimented with different materials to diffuse the light. In the picture above we used tape and balloons.Translate sessionDuring the translate session, Dan invited Roland van Dierendonck, an interdisciplinary researcher, biologist, artist and educator based in Amsterdam working on the intersection of life sciences and creative technologies. He is a co-founder of Amsterdam Biolabs and directing the international BioHack Academy at Waag. He is imploring the impact of smart city technologies on ant colonies.During this translate session, we received feedback on the process, our ideas and the presentation. The feedback was:- Finish the prototype. We were still experimenting with materials and the prototype wasn't put together yet. We had LED light which worked with Arduino and the database, but there was no heatmap yet.- Do a dot voting session on the user data visualization poster.- Test the prototype with UvA if HvA's application is not live yet.- Making the translate session presentation more professional by focusing on phrasing insights.- Infographics will help to reduce complexity and discover patterns.Sprint 2 reviewThe feedback we received from the clients and Gijs Huisman made us steer into an entire new direction:- At first, we want to create awareness for the Smart Campus app, so students will start using it which in return gives us feedback to work with. However, we need to disregard this problem and focus on what the client really wants: an evaluation tool to make info about space more transparent and improve the MAPIQ tool.- Because the Smart Campus app is not live yet, we have to shift our way of thinking. So, instead of focusing on MAPIQ, we could focus on the use of space. If we truly need to test how MAPIQ works, we could always go to the UvA (University of Amsterdam).- The idea which came out of this session was an AR Evaluation Game where students scan an object (this could be a QR code) with their phone, which then shows the students a menu to rate the space they just used to study. This rating is done with AR emotes.In the previous post, one of our goals was to research about people with disabilities and how we can help them with our prototype. However, during this review it might be better to focus on this at a later stage.The Digital Society School is a growing community of learners, creators and designers who create meaningful impact on society and its global digital transformation.

Top 9 Areas to Light-Up Your Vehicle Using LED Lights
Looking for ways to customize your ride? Not looking for the average flame sticker to put on the side? Consider adding customized LED lights to your vehicle.The LED (light-emitting diodes) are devices that, when an electrical current is passed through, produce visible light. The heat produced is absorbed into a heat sink, keeping the bulb or other fixtures it is put in from overheating. Basically, this is what regular light bulb does, but it is better.LED is unique from other types of light, such as incandescent and compact fluorescent, because, when designed well, LED lights are more efficient, durable, versatile, and longer-lasting. LEDs focus on the light they emit in a specific direction. Other bulbs, such as incandescent and CFL, emit light and heat in all directions, making LED lighting more energy-efficient. It's no wonder many car companies such as Mercedes and Audi have added LED lights to their premium car models.LED LightsLEDs are also small, and they provide unique design opportunities for your car, motorcycle, off-road vehicle, boat, and home. But, we're talking about tricking out a ride. Here are the top 10 places to light your vehicle:1. UnderbodyMount an LED kit onto the underbody of your vehicle. This allows for a stylish and unique way to light the road at night.Kits come in a wide variety of colors and other customizations such as glow, flash patterns, and even sound activated modes. Look for lights that are housed in high impact water-resistant acrylic tubes, to ensure your new lights won't get ruined.2. InteriorInterior lighting kits illuminate the areas under your dashboard, seats, and footwells. Like the underbody kits, the interior kits come in a variety of colors and multicolor.Customize the light pattern by switching from fade mode to either flashing, strobe light, or color cycle modes. Sound activation mode allows any of the preprogrammed patterns to react to the tempo of the music playing.Check out this instructional video for installing your own interior LED light kit.3. Wheel WellIf you're more of a tires junkie, consider adding lights to the wheel wells of the tires. With all the customizations in a light color and patterns like interior and underbody kits, the lights on your wheel well will look immensely more impressive and cool when you're speeding down the highway (within the limits, of course).4. Engine BayWhat about those who like to check out what's under the hood? If you're the type of car enthusiast who likes to take their vehicle to car shows or show off what you've got, give your engine bay a modern upgrade by outfitting it with an LED light kit.5. Grille LightIf you're looking for something a little more understated, try adding lights to the grille of your car. It adds a hint of flair to the front of your vehicle without distracting other drivers. Also, many models feature the brand logo on the grille of the car, which would be accentuated with LED lights in a variety of colors.6. Truck Bed and TailgateWho says you can only light your cars? The bodies of trucks offer different ways to illuminate the vehicle. Even if you just use your truck for work, lights can be added to the truck bed and truck toolbox. This allows you to work at night and never waste time searching for something.Lights can also be added to the tailgate, right above the bumper. Tailgate light bars even come complete with running, brake, hazard, and turn signal functions. Some lights include a reverse light function, making sure you will always be seen when backing out.7. On Your MotorcycleLike other vehicles, motorcycles can be outfitted with lighting strips and flexible tubes. However, due to the compact nature of motorcycles, LED pod lights are also available to give your bike's body a vibrant glow. Either kit design, however, will allow you to make specific customizations.Added light on a motorcycle will increase its visibility on the road and, in turn, make the driver safer at night.8. On Your Off-Road Vehicle or Golf CartNo ride is too small to trick out, golf carts included. Durable and flexible LED light tubes are available to mount on the underbody of your golf cart. Similar to a motorcycle, the bodies of most four-wheelers or ATVs are exposed, making them perfect for LED illumination.Tubes and pods can also be equipped with ATVs' underbodies giving it that extra customized touch when climbing sand dunes or speeding through the mud.9. Boat Deck and Im 9oknteriorMaybe you've got a pair of sea legs. Stand out at the dock by adding an LED boat lighting kit to the interior or deck. The control boxes included in these kits are waterproof, just like the LED tubes. This way, you can rest assured that there won't be any problems when you're cutting waves or jetting across the lake.Final ThoughtsLED lights are a perfect way to customize your vehicle, especially if you're looking for a temporary solution. They are easily installed and uninstalled, with only a few minor adjustments to your car's internal wiring. LED lighting kits include either wireless or wired control panels that allow you to choose how you want your lights to shine, and in what color, for the multi-color kits·RELATED QUESTIONI didn't get Google Glass Explorer Edition.
