I like Lego in general. Great for prototyping stuff and surprisingly flexible, (not bendy!).

Thinking outside the B(l)ox! Nice!

Lego's? I thought it was just Lego?

(Just for grammar, Lego's is possessive. Plural of Lego would be Legos so no need for the apostrophe.). Also, from wiki:

"The company name Lego was coined by Christiansen from the Danish phrase leg godt, which means "play well". The name could also be interpreted as "I put together" and "I assemble" in Latin, though this would be a somewhat forced application of the general sense "I collect; I gather; I learn"; the word is most used in the derived sense "I read"."

I thought Lego was just Lego. For example, "I used lots of Lego to produce a large work of Lego." Is this not correct?

Opinions please...

(Cool build whatever!)

What kind of 405 is that? what amperage also?
It is a PHR, the driver is very a very rough made with the LM317, I say rough because it was the first driver I built, I had never soldered before, so everything is twisted together with electrical tape inside the legos, The potentiometer is a 25 ohm rheostat from radioshack. Originally the blue lego host was used for testing and it had wires hanging out of it, I modified it when I put the PHR module I built in there.

At first the driver was built with a 10 ohm resistor and the output current was maxed out at 100mA, I wanted to push the diode a bit so I added two 33 ohm resistors in parallel, now it is outputting about 160mA max. I built a test load using 6 N4001 diodes in series with a 1 ohm resistor to test the current output.

So in short its a PHR diode and the current set in the vid was about 160 mA.

This diode probably won't last too long, and for some reason on camera the beam is much brighter.
