A DIY mini-LED menorah for hanukkah.

    Interesting idea - cheap and low-power-consumption menorah.

    I wonder how it would work with Nixie Tubes - although it would void the cheap part and quite possibly the low-power part as well... not to mention make the entire thing rather large... and hot.

    (Note - in that last comment I mention Nixie tubes. That is because I am an idiot, et cetera et cetera. Nixie tubes are for displaying numerical data. So, unless you want to number your candles (which would be rather nifty if you have trouble counting, or some related problem... numeric dyslexia perhaps?), Nixie tubes would serve no purpose really. But vacuum tubes still might be cool, although still highly impractical....

    One thing that might work very well are small, discrete neon bulbs, which could be driven by some of the nixie tube driver chips. However, one of the nice things about this project is that it's so self-contained. There's the chip, the LEDs, and a pair of wires to the power supply-- that's it. Things get a little bit more complicated when you add in that high-voltage power supply. Not that it can't be done, it's just more complicated.

    Hey, saw your picture at the top of this post:

    Its looking very cool and beautiful ...But i am now thinking how it can be implemented to a designed antique like to a menorah structure.
