I have a suggestion, maybe add a small keyboard from a blackberry (non funtioning) as a greebly and use it for some kind of security lock on the pack,  have a few remote circuit boards here and there areound,  and I'd start weathering the pack, looks too shiney...lol ;D   but that's what I'd do.  Love the disply, shape and color.

if and when I can ever start building my armor and acccessories I'll be using a few circuit boards to add as greeblies to either by back pack or jetpack, it would make it alot less toy looking.

maybe a circuit board from an old pc modem, or ethernet card, can probably find them all over the place.

And now i will put the led pannel scheme

If you assy the 3v led's in paralel ( negative with negative/positive with positive) you dont need to put any resistor if you use an energy supply with the same voltage (3v), that can be made using two common bateries (1,5v each) in line assy, see the diagram below:


And the sheme ivd used for the com pannel is this:

The nylon sheet is for disperse the light of the led's and give an distributed ilumination

And the final result is this:


Hope you guys enjoy!

Looks great! I don't think you can be accused of it looking like a "toy" anymore.
