Wiring for Chell's Portal Gun

Wiring for Chell's Portal Gun - Portal - Chell
This is the circuitboard that provides the power to the LEDs in Chell's gun. In total, there are 27 LEDs: 11 Blue, 13 Orange, and 3 Red. These all require varying degrees of voltage, hence all the wiring. 10 LEDs illuminate the barrel, 4 go to the top indication light, 10 more light up the center body of the gun, and 3 red LEDs will be built into the "claws."

All of the LEDs will be powered by a single 9V battery and controlled by a 3-position switch which allows the user to control all the lighting form a single source. Red LEDs will be triggered by both the blue and orange sides of the switch, and the system can also be turned off.

All told, there are over 50 individual wires controlling everything. I've tested this repeatedly before installing it into the gun casing.

Hmmm... LEDs... cliche. Lackluster trinkets brought back from your trip across the Dweeb Galaxy no doubt.

.... but some 10 year old might think this is cool! Keep going!

Wow, kinda harsh. I think the finished product speaks for itself but maybe I misunderstood your comment.

She's a friend of mine, and just feels like being a snarky punk because she can't make anything this cool.

I've messed with my own wiring stuff before, and it's a pain to me.

Yours is looking great!
