What if I told you that you could build a display out of shoe laces!? Well that is exactly what I’ve done!Building your own seven segment display is nothing new, it’s a very common Arduino project, but I had an idea for this one so I said I’d give it a go, and I am absolutely delighted with how it came out!

It’s made from Light up shoe laces (light pipe), some addressable RGB LEDs (Neopixels) and a 3D print.The idea behind this design was inspired by the Cob LED projects that Unexpected Maker and David Watts are working on.In this Instructable I’m going to show you how I made it and some thoughts and suggestions I have for a second version!”
