Wireless LEDs

These are neat. I’m not sure what we would use them for, but I’m sure I can think of something.


Pretty neat indeed! How about marker lights in the caboose?

Maybe? I think the issue is they still need to be within range of their power pack thingy, its just no wires.

Yep. Watched the video and they rely on a pretty large coil nearby. Might be cool to use on trees with the coil at the base.

Well, if the coil is installed in the roof it should be fine with a range of 10 cm.
I’m just not clear what powers the coil!

OK, just watched the DIY link from the original video and it looks like all you need in 5 volts…


Okay, I didn’t see where I can buy these little LEDs and the wireless output voltage board?

Really cool, thanks Bob.

Right, it would be an application where you couldn’t get wires to…

Marker lights is a great idea, also switch stand lanterns (coil beneath the track? but maybe rail power would interfere?

I noticed the reviewer said they lit up when he held them!

I could see Dave Bodnar having a field day, with cars that light up when passing over a special place, or when waving a coil-wand-thing over them.


Oh I so already have a use for these. A certain someone who hangs out here is getting a present from me some day. Its a Billboard advertising his trucking company. One of the reasons this project stalled, besides the fact that I Devon everything, is a way to make little tiny lights to light it up and get the wires run to where the need to go and make it look like correctly sized conduit. I think it was Rooster who gave me a solution to use brass tube as the conduit and also one of the conductors and run the other wire in it. While that would be a great solution these little wireless guys would be perfect. The power supply could be in the base that hold the sign.

I knew there was a reason i hadn’t finished that project. I needed these.

Nevermind. My big long post needed better research. But these things are cool
