Each light number has from five to 15 LED lights that were soldered on conductive wires to the original micro controller. A total of 109 LED lights were used to create ten numbers to complete a number set of zero through nine. Numerous tests were performed to ensure each light structure could be safely powered through different batteries, and that the brightness would not be hindered by the number of LEDs that were connected.

The power for the light source can safely be sustained either through the original batteries or three AA batteries for a longer duration. A white cover hides the battery pack underneath.
Users can interact with the lights by pressing the button on the battery pack. Pressing the button turns on and changes the modes of light (fast blinking, moderate blinking, and alternating). The button can be pressed a fourth time to turn the lights off. The numbers are able to be adjusted onto the wall and can hover off of the wall's surface to create a dimensional look.

A design system was formed to maintain consistency throughout all of the numbers. The design was created using only curved and straight lines. The design uses the minimum amount of paths for the number forms possible collectively. With this design, the paths of the number forms are often reused and overlapped without the need of a separate path.

The dimensions of the entire 3D structure measures 3 in x 6 in x 2 mm. The thin internal frames are consistently 2 mm around in thickness.
LED Light Placement

Each of the light numbers follow the universal frame. The LED lights were soldered onto the conductive wires according to the frame and its grid structure.
