I made this for a test. It's made from a picture frame, some foam from a camping mat, blue translucent film and a shopping bag all from A Buck Or Two Laughing
The LEDs I got out of a crappy flashlight.


In this crappy video I have a PICAXE reading an analog input and displaying one digit at a time.

I'm planing on making a big one for an alarm clock or something. I'll have to buy a bulk pack of your LEDs, Alan Very Happy

Heres another crappy video. It doesn't look as bad as the pics and videos make it look Very Happy

I sawed the tops off of the LEDs and filed them down to defuse them.

Heres some pics of the insides:
