In the wake of Cyberpunk Your Summer campaign, we’ve been repeatedly asked one question: How do I make my PocketC.H.I.P. glow like that? By popular demand, here it is, your Cyberpunk PocketC.H.I.P. LED & El Wire tutorial!
I had seen the EL Wire PocketC.H.I.P. project by Pocketeer 5t4rw1nd in the forums and decided to give it a go. It was rad, but I needed a bit more case illumination for our planned night time cyberpunk photoshoot. That’s when it hit me. I made a few tweaks and threw LEDs into the mix. With the combination of EL Wire and LEDs the hack really took off. Plus, I used a power inverter and DC step-up, so I made it all glow using only PocketC.H.I.P.’s internal battery.
