LED light circuits are a fun component to add to any build. I’m adding one to the Sega Genesis clone I recently looked at! In this video I take a look at electronic components I commonly use to make cheap DIY LED lights.
Sega Genesis entered onto the market at the very tail end of the 80’s. This was during the fourth generation of video game console alongside the Super Nintendo/Super Famicon and Neo-Geo.
