This is so easy and obvious, it’s probably not even worth mentioning.

Straws, baby

I’m fiddling around with my Arduino and TLC5940, and I’m getting a headache from staring at them. But, I don’t want to sand them down, or otherwise permanently diffuse them, and putting them behind a sheet of paper or typical diffuser won’t let me clearly see the specific patterns I’m trying to achieve.

Amazingly, straws fit atop generic 5mm LEDs “perfectly.”

I’ve also posted this as an Instructable. ┬á
