Holy crap it takes them $235 to make a single unit? That's surprising considering it's primarily plastic [injection mold] with some off-the-shelf electronics.

Edit: I wondered how much each major part of the Coolest Cooler would cost if I purchased each component individually:

Put in a couple of these display stands inside it:

Add some LED lights:

And voila!

I really want this stand but I need to figure out how to re-arrange my room so it'll fit, since the avaliable locations for it is within range of the door/closet door.

u/redjaypeg · 4 pointsr/amiibo

just an idea, but you could stick some battery-powered led lights on the ceiling in each shelf to add some extra light. the ones i'm thinking of turn on by pushing them in like these, but i'm sure you could find something better.

Adding little stick-on battery-powered lights (like this, or maybe something even smaller) to the underside of the shelves would really help make your collection more visible. Pretty cool!

u/ThatFunkoBitch · 3 pointsr/funkopop

Yeah, the type of display would determine the type of lighting that works best

These are two of my favorites

u/ashikkins · 3 pointsr/funny's just being powered by a switch lol.

Ah! Well, you'd need to redo your legs so they stretch back more like this.

Then the cup holder post is just a piece of 1/2" PVC that are spray painted.

The cup holders are 3D printed (I'd be happy to print some for you)

The lights are these, which work really well as they can be rotated to shine on the boards. /ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

Also need a PVC coupler to insert into the crossmember on the legs, the PVC Cupholder Post sits inside the coupler when playing.

You can get a better idea from the pictures of this set I built last summer.

I've tried the lights in the hole and although they are better than nothing, they're distracting and often too bright. Lights above the board, like my sets, shine down on the whole board, not just the hole (seeing as I hit the board but not the hole most often, this is what I needed...)

The cupholders/lights also store under the boards for storage/transport as seen here.

Let me know if you're interested in getting a set of printed cup holders and we can work out a price + shipping.

I saw someone do a Tony Stark in a suit:

You can do the arc reactor light with just one of those LED stick on circle push lights if you keep it under your shirt, the detail won't matter.

u/0x424d42 · 2 pointsr/marvelstudios

Arc reactor


The arc reactor I found by accident after having already bought something else. This one, amazingly, fit perfectly into the cavity and had no bezel (my first one was thinner, and was the same diameter but had a bezel).

The hand repulsors are wired (you can see the wire on my right wrist) to a battery pack that I purchased separately. There’s a power switch for them under my right arm.

u/EldritchCarver · 2 pointsr/funny

You could also get a small LED adhesive light, like this or this, that you could stick to your bathroom wall. Just push it and it'll light up enough for you to aim, but not enough to hurt your eyes. Also useful to strategically position around your house in case of power outages, or somewhere like a closet or outdoor shed that can be dark but doesn't have an outlet easily available.

u/Advmoto · 2 pointsr/DIY

Vinyl overlay on an LED battery powered closet light.

Print this image HERE on this vinyl HERE

EDIT: Of course you'd have to size the arc image appropriately to the size of the closet lamp. That was the first closet lamp I saw with a frosted cover, and it may be worthwhile to find one thats not so rounded (less like a dome).
EDIT 2: double check the diameter of the light. Thought I had seen some dimensions making it look like a good choice, but could be wrong.

u/Jethro_Cull · 2 pointsr/DIY

These "anywhere led battery tap lights" are cheap and quick. They're good for small spaces, like closets and sheds, plus you don't have to run any electrical.

u/voodoo_curse · 2 pointsr/navy

Get a couple of these, and put them inside your locker. Makes finding things in the middle of the night much easier. I also had one in my rack for reading with, the normal rack light was just too bright.

Doubling up on curtians is nice, but people will probably steal them at some point. A much safer plan is to take the existing curtians, take them to a tailor out in town, and have them add a layer or two of cloth. After that, put them back in your rack, and put a small screw in the track that they hang from. With that $0.05 piece of hardware, your curtians are safe from all but the most determined of berthing thieves.

Also, these padlocks were phenomenal. They're opened by sliding the button up, down, left, or right. No fumbling with keys or squinting at combinations in the dark. I had mine set to a quick up-down, and could have my locker open and be halfway dressed by the time my neighbor was spinning his padlock to the 3rd number.

Edit: One last thing, get a small carabiner to hang your loofah or shower sponge from your towel bar. Keeping it in your locker or stuffing it at the foot of your rack is just begging for mildew.

Used these lamps to light it up.

u/immnamna1 · 2 pointsr/cosplay

If you are talking specifically about the center light up part, I am using a 'tap light' and mounting that in the middle of the foam harness. You can get a battery operated one off of Amazon. They have a few different size options.

Such as:

I actually just answered this in my cross post :)

>The nukacola in the images? I made it! Just take some classic coke bottles (I bought some from a Mexican dealer, which sounds shady but was just cheaper to get the glass bottles), use a blade to scrape off the labels, and you can find labels online that are already pre-formatted. Print them onto label paper (or just use a gluestick) and cut those suckers out and stick them on.

>To give them the aged, post-nuclear holocaust effect, simply take a dry brush and some burnt umber acrylic paint, and with very little paint GENTLY brush it.

>For Quantum, take the same steps, but crack open the bottles and drink the coke. Be sure the bottles are really clean, add water to just below the brim, and then use a bit of neon food coloring (you can buy special neon packs; looks way better) to color it. Then get some of the push-lights and use a blue sharpie to color the outside (to help the light shine brighter with the blue water).
After that you can do the same steps to weather it. I also weathered the push light to make it a tad cooler.

>Right now I'm working on making the six-pack carrier, as I have 3 nukacolas and 3 Quantums.

?Oh!! As for caps I just spray painted the normal caps red (with enamel paint) and painted the logo on in acrylic. For the Quantums I actually took some Coor's caps (which are silver) and sanded off the logo, which gave a super cool silver-y effect.

Hope this helps you!! :)

They're super cool :) I hope to make a working lamp soon :D

Little lights like these or similar may be a good option if you're ever looking for something cheap but efficient for your room. I remember placing these on our built-in dorm cabinetry freshman year for a little extra light in front of our mirror.

u/forfeitreality · 1 pointr/NYCC

You know those small LED lights that are about 3-4" in diameter and turn on and off just by pushing on it? They sell them at housewares stores for a few dollars each. Maybe one of those will work? Like

Or you could use a group of the kinds of single LED lights that twist to turn on like . They come in different colors too if you're still looking for gauntlet lights (but may be too bulky for that purpose).

u/windowpayne · 1 pointr/DIY

this can be set to turn off after 1-5 mins

u/AuntieSocial · 1 pointr/

You need to stick a few of these at the top of the stairs.

u/willmoreGG · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace you can easily buy one of these in rgb and they look great inside of a case. As long as you hide them out of sight.

u/dewster_freed · 1 pointr/Sneakers
u/BigDwedding · 1 pointr/weddingplanning

Just saw these on Amazon, in the reviews someone put them in lanterns. Remembered this and came back to share. :)

u/Elite7x · 1 pointr/AnimeFigures these are the lights, if you get them, i recommend buying rechargeable AAA batteries for them.

u/bikerking95 · 1 pointr/vandwellers

Assuming your ceiling is the right type of fabric, a few of these and some velcro adhesive strips on the back of them could work well and stick to the ceiling.

u/EARLtheSQIRREL1 · 1 pointr/AnimeFigures

Thanks :D

No they don't, they use 3 AAA batteries. Here is a link if you want to check them out

u/pickled_optimism · 1 pointr/AskElectronics

What I was seeing in my head was this module somehow connected to a light like this that I can then strap somehow to his crib. I like that it's battery powered so that I can...I don't know...rig a piece of tupperware or something for the housing. I don't know how to put electrical components together, but I suppose I could YouTube something. I just have a tendency to make my ideas more complicated than they probably need to be. I feel like this could be simple to do, but I also don't want to accidentally shock the poor kid when he pushes the button.

u/Khirsah01 · 1 pointr/wiiu

Maybe OP can see about two small single LED lights that are normally used for decorative lights? Perhaps tape a couple of them together in the distance the sensor bar is and it may work? The LED kludge may not look pretty but might be serviceable.

I do like the thought of the atmospheric tea candles. Wait... Aren't there fake candles that are battery powered? I don't know if those would be powerful enough... You've got me curious to check Amazon now!

Edit: Do you think something like These Battery Tea Lights could be bright enough? Or there's this LED Bar Night Light where you might be able to use a thick material to tape around the center lights so only the two opposite ones are working, but they might shine in your eyes... I'm sure a thick material with small holes poked through to let some light out might work.

Hell with it, it's cheaper to go with this Wireless Wii Sensor Bar from INSTEN. I'm seeing 6.98 USD and you could just throw in some batteries and turn it off when you're not using it to save power.

u/vanontom · 1 pointr/mildlyinteresting

Yeah, I don't want anything hanging in my toilet, on the rim, etc. Just gets dirty, adds another step to cleaning. I have a little "touch" LED light (example) sitting on top of toilet tank, works well: easy tap on and off, small, not too bright, affordable, regular batteries, stays clean, recommended.

u/Pewpewpwnj00 · -2 pointsr/funny
u/FECAL_BURNING · -6 pointsr/CrappyDesign

Honestly this looks like someone stuck one of these into the fridge. Probably explains why OP isn't answering questions about the make and model of the fridge.
