Quick little video of my improved particle cannon (turn sound up, by the way!) I spent today (er, it’s 6 am now, so I suppose I mean “yesterday”) replacing some pieces, so I used the opportunity to make some upgrades.
Pretty happy with how this turned out.
All made with EVA foam from The Hero Studio, with the beam generator, handle and two central arms 3D printed bin PLA on my Wanhao Duplicator. Featuring an Adafruit Industries Trinket 5V to control the WS2812B LED strips. The sound board is also by Adafruit.
Oh and here’s a pic of the prop in action:
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
