How To Make It


Build your circuit. Snap the bits in this order: power + light trigger + light wire.


Wrap light wire around your favorite pair of sunglasses.


Adjust the light trigger so it activates when it senses darkness.


Venture forth and impress all your friends with your sweet new shades that light up when it gets dark out!
