Have recently finisched my long wanted mod on the xbox remote control.
Have been here beside me waiting for some fun leds to come in the mail, exactly a week ago they arived, 128 of them tongue.gif

This is the results of the fully cramed controller smile.gif

user posted imageuser posted image

Totally 8 blue leds beside buttons (camera didn't catch the light around the number buttons)

Bigger arrow = 5mm Blue led, smaller arrow = 3mm blue led

The bright Green 5mm leds in the front...DAMN they are bright...Lighting up the living room easily! Like a flashlight

The placement of the switch for the Flashlight wink.gif



I wired ALL leds in parallell, the green to negative and to switch thats positive, the blue to negative and to switch thats under the controller thats positive.

Did a little drilling and cutting inside the controller so the light could reach all the buttons, especially for the number buttons.

Thats about it, oohhh also had a bunch of 10 Swedish Íre that isn't useable anymore (they are small so fit well in the litte remote) so I glued some in there to just to get the real feeling...
I glued all leds with glue gun. Not complicated but alot of soldering and VERY tight in there so it took some time getting it together biggrin.gif

Hope you enjoy, sorry for not posting any pictures of the inside, does not have any and I'm NOT going to open that damn thing again....EVER!


Happy to answer questions and thoughts... //Varsa

Well I really don't know about the batteries, they are probably going to be empty soon wink.gif but the thing is that the leds only light up when you want them to...I'm not going to use the flashlight so often and not the button glow either, just when I really need them.
Actually isn't the most mods just for show?
