Its really pretty simple. Wheels came up with it, use a piece of fiber-optic cable, I cut up a old audio cable and cut the thick cable then pulled out the fiber in black liner, it is about 2.5mm thick. I simply stuck then one end on the edge of the LED thing in the back. and the other end I put at a angle pointing to the lens about 1cm away from the lens to reduce the size in the image. done, now I see blinking lights litterally.
