LEARN: Viking wayFinder Project: Side glow acrylic and Neopixels

Embrace your inner barbarian with magical lights and tech.  This guide will take you through design and creation of a 3d printed enclosure for laser-cut side glow acrylic using a Pro Trinket and neopixel skinny LEDs.  Add something truly unique to your cosplay.  Use it to tell fortunes, open Waystones, or barter for mead.

I love this guide because it mixes the newest, fanciest tech available with ancient myths and stories, creating an alternate reality of futuristic post apocalypse tech-magic.  Because that’s just how I roll.
