In this easy 3D printing project, we’ll build glowing mason jar lanterns containing a simple LED and battery circuit. Download my file or build your own custom lid using the Glow Circuit Assembly in Tinkercad, which is designed to hold the battery and LED together perfectly. I’ll show you four different ways to style your lanterns using materials you probably already have around.

I made this guitar pedal following my friend Randy Sarafan’s design. It is a gift for my brother’s 40th birthday, and since I don’t have an electric guitar to test it with, I had to use our pocket piano. =D

In my decade of experience building with and teaching Arduino, I see three mistakes more often than any others. Beginners typically:
- bite off more than they can chew by attempting to build a project with too many elements at once,
- make incorrect assumptions during prototyping,
- and underutilize the resources available to them online.
My latest project is a vintage Brownie camera fitted with a Raspberry Pi that captures three photos and uploads a resulting GIF to my Tumblr page.
In my desire to capture more GIFs (and b-roll of using it) and discover the remaining bugs before publishing the tutorial, I took it to Maker Faire NY today, published the Instructable soon after. The project is based on Python code from Lara’s free Raspberry Pi Class on Instructables.
If I hadn’t gone to Maker Faire, all the GIFs for the project would be like this one:
more GIFs after the jump.
