Tom Knabe builds a theatrical effect that recreates the petal drop from Beauty anbd the Beast. Amazing. via Tom Knabe
The task was to create an RC-Controlled rose prop that allows the stage hand to control each petal with a complimentary cascading light effect.
I decided to use an Arduino Nano due to its low profile and high I/O. The Arduino alone cannot provide enough current & voltage to drive multiple servos. So, I chose a PWM driver from Adafruit to drive both Servos and Ultra-bright LEDS.
