Ever tried to find money in a dimly lit area? It can be pretty frustrating. Nate True, a Seattle-based inventor was sick of finding himself in these situations. After checking out light-up wallets on the market, he decided nothing met his needs, so he set out to create his own: the Walluminate.

"The first and arguably most important part is to find a suitable wallet," True said. "I was given a leather wallet last Christmas which has some great stitching along the top edge on either side of the money hole. It was just the perfect size to slip a few white LED's I'd salvaged from an old cell phone."

On his site, he walks you through the steps to make your own, and even has a video to show off his invention. Stats for Light-Up LED Wallet Trending: Older & Average
