We have developed a product based on Raspberry Pi and currently designing the enclosure. To enable users to understand the status of our device we would like to provide two LEDs. These LEDs would blink slow, fast or be solid providing information to the users.
We are looking for ideas or components which will glue to the enclosure and connect to a RPi connector. Has anybody done this before? We looking for ideas on how best to do do this.
- Solder the LEDs to the P2 connector on RPi.
- Create tunnel columns in the enclosure one per LED. These tunnel open on the surface of enclosure on one end and on the LED on the RPi PCB on the other. Light from the LEDs travels through this tunnel and shows on the surface of the enclosure.
