Do-It-Yourself LED Bike Wheels

Our first cousins at Kotaku showed us these unique LED Pac Man Spoke Lights, hand-made spoke art constructed by a gal named LadyAda. Now you can animate both of your bicycle wheels, one with Pac Man and the other with that little blue ghost he's chasing. LadyAda shows you how to make your own in a highly detailed how-to post.

The LED Bike Wheel is constructed of 30 LEDs on each side and runs on two to three AA batteries. Once you get up to 15 mph, you achieve what LadyAda calls "total persistence," that concept that makes video appear seamless. Not only does it look extremely cool, it'll give you great visibility at night, too.
