Aperture portal gun (codename: project aperture)

So today I've decided to begin keeping track of my plethora of projects. From design to completion. My current project is this year's Halloween costume. Jenn and I decided that this year we would go as escaped test subjects from aperture laboratories.

The first step I took was was to figure out the electronics part of making a portal gun. I had to figure out how to make an orange and blue tube of color. I decided to use a RBG (red, blue, green) LED strip. For it's versatility and hackability into other projects (I got 5 meters of this sh*t).
After about 2 days of tinkering after work I got the right color and setup using 2 switches, an 800{ohm} resistor and 4 diodes.
