My 4 year old daughter received a handheld lightbright for her birthday. It doesnt have a regular on/off switch, it has a button you press and then it's suppose to go off on its own after awhile. Anyways, i put in a switch to turn it on and off and was thinking: it's pretty sad that I look at my children's toys and see how I can mod them. And then I thought (sounds of angel's, heavens open up, God smiles at me) why not put an xbox in a lightbright?!?! And still have the functionality of the lightbright!!!

I would have to find an old lightbright, but I think it could be done with the "lightbright" part's light could be a "wall" of led's and plexiglass painted white and then the reverse side be the motherboard with the rest of it arranging the dvd drive/hd and psu! ports on the sides.

so has it been done? I ve searched and havent seen anything. If anyone has one of these can you take a quick glance to see about fit. Does anyone see anything Im missing?

they still make the big light brights like the old ones.
but i dont think an xbox as a whole will fit.
you will probly have to take it apart and mount stuff on an angle

I use to have one of those giant lightbrights. i was only 8 or 9... you might run into the problem of heat. those big ones put out a lot of heat from those bulbs. I dont know about these days but i remember that when i first got mine the bulbs were nearly impossible to find cause they wernt standard bulbs.

for the lighting issue of the lighbright... did you ever think of using some LED's? (white of course) using thre 5V line form the xbox... kill 2 birds with one stone and not ahve 2 power cords..

I think I would replace it with led's; easier to wire!

Im thinking something like this; it's a cross section

if u did put it in a light bright u would have 2 mod it with leds. The light bulb that is in there would prob give to much heat on the mobo.

It's a children's toy that is essentially a lightbulb in a box..... the light sits behind a plastic grid that accepts small multicolored pegs..... which in turn light up for a led-like effect....... http://www.globecoff...s/litebrite.jpg
