So I had a dead diode on the table a few weeks back.
I was hanging out with a few people when one of my friends just picked up the diode and fit it in her slightly gauged ear.
Apparently she has fuzzy ears on camera. HA!
Anyways I thought it was a cool idea, So I'll be saving my dead diodes now!

Whatever floates your boat. If they still emit some light I use them for optics as they aren't a laser anymore but they still have a very small emitter area along with some funny colors.

Like my 200mw red dilda that died looks like a 5mw but more orange.

Also i'd be worried about possible toxic compounds in the diodes.

I might be overdoing it but it might be something to look up if you're gonna put them on your skin

That is a good point! I wouldn't think the casing or emitters would hold any different toxins compared to any other bogus jewelry out there. She also only had it in for the pic. I will have to look into this If I plan on having anyone do this long term.
Thanks for the suggestion as I probably wouldn't think of that. Being a full time mechanic I rarly think of toxins and such.

she had plans for gluing an actual pin on it... so that would seal those.

Now, I promise I'm not a serial killer, but am I the only one who saw "New use for dead bodies"? :whistle:

No, when I first saw it I was like "WHAT THE HE- oh".

I guess "Diodes" can look pretty close to "Bodies" if you're just skimming. :)

That DOES make me ask what the OLD uses were for dead bodies or dead diodes?
