Illuminated Pieces

We can make the pieces using a translucent plastic and then add different internal lighting effects.

On the left is a king with a high power tricolour LED module installed which illuminates upwards.

We have some ideas to add variable LED colour lighting as one option.

On the right is the bishop with two white LED illuminating strips in the centre of the piece. This will be good for adding some control electronics to be able to adjust the brightness of the illumination. Power requirements are 12VDC at around 500mA.
