Sunset Skateboards makes assemble-it-yourself skateboards with a plastic deck and self-illuminating wheels. The wheels sell for $10 each. Via DesignBoom.
Flare LED wheels are powered by the motion of the rolling wheel. Inside each wheel there is an inner magnetic collar that remains stationary on the axle. As a copper wrapped outer core spins around the stationary collar electricity is created thus powering the four LEDs in the wheels. Flare LED wheels are made for decorative illumination only. We do not recommend riding the skateboards at night as you can not properly see obstacles that lie ahead.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
