Here’s an project from this past summer that is pretty cool if you missed it. Adafruit community member Paulo Sobrinho sent it in along with the question whether it might be possible “to implement such a cool solution with Raspberry Pi!”
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

The video was uploaded to YT last year, but it’s much, much older – I remember seeing this project (and the video) at least 5-6 years ago, and I had a crack (not so successfully) at making my own. Getting the mirrors mounted and aligned is hard! Although these days I could probably 3d print a mirror mount with all the angles set perfectly.
Willing to make available any instructables or tips of you solution?
