Obnoxiously bright DS buttons

What the blurry image above is showing you is yet another mod for the DS Lite. Gamer Grandpasmurf found a tutorial on AcidMods that helped him put blue LED lights underneath transparent buttons that he purchased on NDS-Central. To demonstrate their glowing power, he filmed himself playing Final Fantasy III. They seem to work great and no real damage was done to his DS. Call it the angle of the camera, but we find these a little too bright for our taste.

See the video after the break and tell us what you think.

Excellent Game Choice. The WiFi blinking was pretty sweet. But I do agree, the brightness of the D-pad and buttons is rather disgusting looking in the camera. Do the button markings show through the glow? If not, thumbs down on this mod.

woulda been cool if just the letters glowed. It's the little touches like that that scream: GOOD TASTE.

Finally, something to take my eyes off of those two distracting screens.

I'm sure a slight dab of black paint in the shape of letters would let you mark 'em accurately (and tone down that glow).

Each to his own I would guess. The bright lights would make evening play unbearable, or at least irritating.
