I think I'd have a seizure having that psychedelic thing in the room, but whatever cranks up your crank meter dude

If you know how magnets and coils work....yea.....install small coils on the blade tips...with magnets around the perimiter of the fan shroud....as the fan turns, the coil passes the magnet...generates a small current..that powers the LED.

Could be expensive....it would cut into your weed budget....
Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.
