I mentioned that there was a final mod I would like to make to this and I finally got round to doing it. I wanted the vanes to be heart shaped but there is an issue with the amount of light produced by one LED and multiple LED's are out of the question because that gives multiple lines of light. I still think the effect is pretty cool, although there will be another revision of this shortly.

Besides all the laser cutting I'm still making other things too so I thought I'd post some of those up here. We bought these mosaic kits from Hobbycraft for £2.50 and they were actually very good fun to do, I'd recommend getting some if you can.
After the moderate success of Kaths useless box (ok complete success really until the batteries go flat and we have to force the box open again) I've taken another look at the box design and the components and come up with something 50% smaller, taking less batteries and generally better all round. The new design features a battery compartment, an on/off switch (for power) on the underside and the lid is now pulled down with elastic to make sure it stays shut. The whole thing is made with shop bought components so I can fabricate as many as needed.
This kit can be purchased through my shop here
