Uncover the secrets of this new guide in the Adafruit Learning System and build your own Shutterglass Chamber, a mystery box containing three shadowboxes hidden behind magically transforming glass panels!
Astound people with a mystery box that will reveal secrets hidden behind its transforming panels! Build this secret shadow box using LCD shutter glass panels, a Trinket microcontroller, and a healthy dose of mystery! The Trinket adjusts voltage to fade the panels from opaque to transparent — all triggered by a hidden magnet sensor.
This guide will show you how to build the Shutterglass Chamber, the mystery box prop built for an interactive mystery performance.
You can also use this guide as a generalized technique for fading LCD panels up and down in any project you can imagine.
An Adafruit Trinket 5V microcontroller, charger, and LiPo battery, control the mysteries revealed by three LCD panels.
