An Actual Update

I am finally all moved in and got to sit down yesterday and start on this project. I went and got out all of my tools, parts, and breadboard. Then when I went to get my blue led, I realized that I had left them at home (parents' house). I did however have green leds and my resistors. My green leds have the same properties as my blue ones so I was able to build a "prototype". My goal is to stuff the circuit into a bottle cap but this could be kind of hard to do. So here are some pictures.

 These are the two batteries that I plan on using. I do not currently have anything to hold them :/.
 This is the test circuit on a proto/breadboard. It is a 6v supply, 150 ohm resistor, and a bright green led rated at 3.2 volts.
 This is another shot.
This is the Coke bottle I plan on using. The only problem i have with the soda bottle is the fact that its label does not come off so I have to just slap the label on top of it. Also I currently do not own a color printer which poses a problem with printing the label.

This is how far I am as of today. I will not make much progress until after this weekend because I need to go home to get the rest of my parts. Thanks for following.
