I lit the motor in my Android A!

(Which may be old hat.)

But I'm psyched! Check it!

Sorry for the clumsy reinsert!

Wow, that looks great!

Are you a teacher, or a student?

Where did you score that compact l LED/Battery unit?

Ha ha!

That's my office.

I'm an ex-teacher, who is now the general manager of a business needing some improvement, so large whiteboards to assert goals and keep track of progress are necessary! (I try my best to not treat them like 6th graders, but the management is similar.)

Last 10 minutes of the day, after a heady meeting, needed some toy surgery!

I bought a little Valentine Bear at the local pharmacy (Walgreen's) for $1.99. Ripped the LED system out, broke the battery casing and freed everything up. Replaced the three LR44 batteries with one CR320 I think (a 3V watch battery). Taped the battery up, and crammed it into the motor casing.

This LED has a switch, but I plan to replace it with one of those LED setups that light up if you shake or jiggle it.

No toy confiscation here!

Thanks guys!

I picked up a couple flashy bounce balls and ripped out the LED setup in those. That way if you just shake the motor it lights up.
