KaTrona: EL Wire + Katana

Spotted in the Adafruit flickr pool, this awesome project by Jason Beeland. He writes:

This is a wooden katana upgraded with aqua EL wire around the blade and guard.

This sword and five others were made and taken to Dragon*Con in Atlanta. There they received great response from other attendees with many asking where I got the materials. I gladly told them how to find adafruit!

While packing to leave a clever young lady dubbed it a “KaTrona”.

Neat!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. I was one of the six that built and carried these. Mine was red! They looked fantastic at the late-night parties:

    We’re already discussing how to make sturdier, more interactive ones for next year!
