One of my biggest projects this year is Master Nova from Heroes of the Storm. She is still not done, but I’m excited to share the making of her rifle at least, haha!
This project was mainly done with EVA foam and a 3mm MDF wood board as a core. I laser cut all pieces, installed around 2 meters of LED strip inside and separated the whole build into 3 parts.
Materials were high density EVA foam in 2mm, 5mm and 10mm from
LED strips, 5V Trinket, a Powerboost 500c and a 6600 mAh lipo battery from

Featured Adafruit Products!
Adafruit Trinket – Mini Microcontroller – 5V Logic: Trinket may be small, but do not be fooled by its size! It’s a tiny microcontroller board, built around the Atmel ATtiny85, a little chip with a lot of power. We wanted to design a microcontroller board that was small enough to fit into any project, and low cost enough to use without hesitation. Perfect for when you don’t want to give up your expensive dev-board and you aren’t willing to take apart the project you worked so hard to design. It’s our lowest-cost arduino-IDE programmable board!

PowerBoost 500 Charger – Rechargeable 5V Lipo USB Boost @ 500mA+: PowerBoost 500C is the perfect power supply for your portable project! With a built-in battery charger circuit, you’ll be able to keep your project running even while recharging the battery! This little DC/DC boost converter module can be powered by any 3.7V LiIon/LiPoly battery, and convert the battery output to 5.2V DC for running your 5V projects. Read more.
