NEW TUTORIAL: Pocket Galaxy

The Pocket Galaxy is a small, 3d printed infinity mirror using NeoPixel leds & see-through acrylic mirrors. It makes a fun desk accessory, and a LiPoly battery and charger keep it blinking on the go.

By illuminating the interior of the mirrored frame, the light is reflected ‘infinitely’ into the distance, creating a black hole-like effect.

NOTE: We sell all of the components needed for this project EXCEPT the see-through mirrored acrylic. If you have access to a laser cutter you can buy a sheet and cut, otherwise, two 2 1/8″ x 2 1/8″ cuts can be bought here for $10.

You’ll also need a soldering iron, some krazy glue and a 3d Printer. This particular Pocket Galaxy was printed on a Printrbot Simple Metal.
