Courtesy of the fine geeks at here is a nice little video on making LEDs from scratch; impractical but fun. They refer to a few engineers I've written about in the past including Oleg Losev, Nick Holonyak and Henry Joseph Round. It's worth spending a few minutes to watch, and to remember that electronics are just for geeks. You too can enjoy wholesome educational fire hazards in the home.
