This is my rovio disassembled. You can see the circuit board which is glued in place there. It takes the original lighting circuit and draws power from a separate source. It's a transistor which is hooked directly to the battery and uses the original LED power wire as a signal wire. The new wire is routed up the neck of the Rovio Mobile webcam.
Here you can see a side profile
And the other side
Here is a closeup of the small transistor circuit board.
The LEDs were positioned in the head right where they should be, on either side of the webcam.
Profile shot, put back together
Here you can see my phone controlling the Rovio and a picture of my hands holding the camera on the phone, controlling my rovio mobile camera.
It was a fun project.
