I saw a project on youtube that used a neon-like led strip. It looked so interesting that I searched for more. The projects that I found used CNC carved channels for the led strip. Since I don’t own or have access to CNC, I used a 3D printer.
For the final touch, I used wifi enabled smart plug to turn the “neon” light on when my computer is on. I made a python script to control the smart plug. It uses the TinyTuya library for communication. Sleepwatcher handles the sleep and wake-up events and runs the python script.
