Apple logo color LED's - 11/25/05 08:38 PM

I have an idea for a mod to somehow install those RBG multicolor LED's to illuminate the apple logo on the back of a PB or iBook. The power would be tied off the LCD power and there would be switched to select red, blue, or green or a mixture of colors. Since I sold my PB G3 I don't anything to test it out on. Any suggestion, or anyone willing to try it?

i dont have a functioning ibook anymore, but its an awesome idea for one. There's enough room to place the leds around the outside of the apple logo. maybe use a thin plastic strip to "carry" the light across the apple in a contained strip. I would really like to see this one attempted

just be carefull to make sure the light dosen't leak back to the lcd side, when i have my ibook facing really bright light i can see the apple logo throught the tft, so bright leds may make strannge effects if not completely masked.

good idea. just get the flat LEDs and paint one side black.
