As the [R]ed[U]x Lab team puts the finishing touches on their Stop Night Market Cart design, they have been busy exploring the possibilities of lighting and powering the cart for the evening's festivities. Unfortunately power is something hard to come by in the Honest Ed's alleyway so the team has been experimenting with LED's, circuitry, and automotive batteries to keep the cart illuminated for the entire night. Once again the staff and resources at the Department of Architectural Science assisted the team in sorting and sourcing out lighting support including multicoloured LED strip lighting. Note the varying tones that can be set for the cart depending on the wiring configuration.
