This circuit built with 2 NPN transistor, 4 resistors, 2 capacitors and 2 LEDs works fine.


I know this is a bit old now but I would love to make it. Anyone know where to get the instructions/schematic?

Love the idea of using a capsule as an integral part of a toy. Great idea!

since this is years-old now, can you add the wiring diagram into the files for this? (I have no way of getting a copy of a 2012 editiion of Wired...)

The instructions I found are text only and are lacking the schematic. Anyone have a copy of it? The link in the comments that go to radioshackdiy 404.

Thanks for sharing this amazing design, just in the process of making one, will pop down to my local supermarket to look for the dome.

Instead of going to a vending machine you can also use the cup of a hairspray can as dome. Andrelon hairsprayfix fits perfectly.

I need a way to attache the button if I decide not to wire up one of them. . .

I don't see a diagram.

The clear plastic dome is a standard AA capsule from a regular vending machine capsule.  The step-by-step guide will be posted at http://radioshackdiy.com/light-upshackbotradioshackdiy.com/light-upshac...

Is the clear plastic dome similar to one of those containers found in a certain brand of chocolate egg?

There are no dimensions or STL etc.  :-(
