as always im not responsible for any damage You do while using this tut.

Things you will need:
4 100ohm 1/4Watt resistors
2 PnP Transistors (i use 2N3906)
???ohm Resistor (depends on the number of led you will be using)
Leds, Soldering iron, Rosin Flux, Solder, a 360, Knowledge about how to open and mod the 360.

its pretty much a self explanatory diagram, if you have any questions feel free to post or pm me.

I fab-ed one up on some prefboard, i thought it might make it a little easier seeing it actually built.

Here is a Video of it On.


Thanks to Pablot for the Starter Diagram.

Edit2:

Ring of Light Inversion

Things you will need:
3 1UF 6+v Capacitor (has to be atleast 6v) (i have only tested it with Electrolytic Radial)
10meg Ohm 1/4th Watt Resistor
2 NPN 3.3v, 200ma or Greater Transistor
1 PNP 3.3v, 200ma or Greater Transistor
1 PNP 3.3v, 400ma or Greater Transistor (depending on how many leds you have hooked up)

the diagram is confusing to me, but I can't read electronic..yet smile.gif As far as where to solder the points. If I had a 360 to mod and a more detailed tutorial (for the non electronics guy) I would defiantly use this.

well im board so i will wire up something a little easier to fallow.

alright, i put up a new diagram that doesn't look so complex, i figure if you cant read that you probably shouldn't be doing this mod.

A good mod using this would be to wire a led tray (one of those boards with a few leds on it) to each side and when you turn your 360 on it will looks sweet as.

Thanks for the guide

Why can't you just take off the SMDs and solder extension wires?

Or just solder wires to the SMD pads with theSMD leds on? would be a little messy, but you would haven't to screw with transistors....
