Have fun with these do-it-yourself LED lights that go around your monitor. They are easy to build and the materials are not at all expensive. All you have to do is strip a fiber optic cable, and then glue them to the back of a foam board whilst using a flashing RGB LED to power the other end. The highly focused fiber optic cables bring the light through the cables and disperses them for a cool effect!
PLUG: Thanks to Verizon FiOs for supplying the fiber optic cable. Only Verizon FiOS gives all its customers SpeedMatch. This means you get upload speeds that match your download speeds.
