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.

Parts

Links to these products can also be found on the right sidebar!

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.

Prerequisite Guides

It’d be best to take a look over these guides and get familiar with these components!

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.
