According to legend, one of the reasons why the Xbox logo jewel on the controller is so large is because the Xbox team wanted it to glow a freakish Xbox green. As the legend goes, this feature was cut for cost reasons, leaving us with a big, useless jewel in the center of our controllers.
Now with all the folks around here lighting up the jewel in their console, I thought that it would be cool to make the controller jewel legend come true, and so I'm lighting mine up. I plan to use 16 LEDs controlled by a microcontroller so that onlookers can be wowed by freakishly green flash/fade/wave effects...
I'll post pics when I'm done. In the meantime, I'd like to know if anyone thinks that they might be interested in PCB gerbers or the finished product?
