Adding LEDs

The next step in creating this lantern involves somehow incorporating three of these 1″ cube LED lights in a way that preserves the integrity of the modules themselves. Since we can’t use anything aside from the lights and folded paper in these lanterns, it’s going to take several iterations for me to come up with a way to house these within the lamp. The biggest concern I have is that to turn each light on, you have to flip a tiny switch on the side, which could present a big problem if there’s no easy way to access the switch in its final location in the lamp. I considered trying to wire them together and use some sort of remote switch, but I have a sneaking suspicion that something in that scheme won’t work out…
