I finally decided on something to make with Adafruit’s 60 pixel rings I bought a while ago. Designed over a weekend.
MADE TO FIT OVER GLASSES!
Added a new half piece for smaller print beds, or beds that don’t handle big prints well.
This is a very simple build! Takes less than an hour to print, next to no touch-ups are needed. Just add the neopixel rings and an arduino and your good to go!
Some simple soldering required.
This project has an optional addition of an encoder to the arduino which lets you change the speed and brightness of the visor on the fly.
I measured the current of the default speed/brightness to be about 150 mA, so most batteries will last a long time with this.
