Its light source is a neopixel jewel, with seven addressable pixels allowing for an amazing array of color changes and animations. The end-glow fibers dance around in the air and create a whirl of color points that is mesmerizing to watch and incredibly fun to play with. I never want to put it down.
The handle is 3d printed and fits the battery and all the electronics inside. There’s a button for changing modes and an on-off switch. It’s got an onboard battery charger too, so you can play with it for hours and then recharge by plugging in a USB cable.
