I’m a superfan of the Harry Potter universe. One of my favorite characters is Luna Lovegood. One of the things she has in the movie were are pair of Spectre Specs that came with every copy of the Quibbler.
In this project, I wanted to create my own version of the Spectre Specs. To create the lens effect, I used a technique that created an infinity mirror in each eye.
It is based on the Adafruit NEOpixel goggles, a kit that I I had built earlier.
I modeled and 3d printed a few parts to create the specs.
Overall this was a very easy project but I still learned a lot of new techniques and also learned more about the Arduino code.
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.
