Parks Graflex 2.0 Lightsaber Hilt Upgraded with Custom Teensy 3.5 Extension Board for Prop Interactions | #starwars #lightsaber

I was recently telling a friend about this Graflex Lightsaber project and then serendipitously the maker – TheFirebrandForge – appeared on a recent episode of Show-and-Tell (video below) – cool! This project is amazing. It uses a Parks Graflex 2.0 ‘saber handle along with a 3D-printed inner chasis, Teensy 3.5 and custom extension board for lights & sound control, to assemble a customized lightsaber prop! (Pleasant side effect is the lightsaber doubles as a VU meter too 🙂 )

Here’s a video of the prop in light & sound action:

And kudos to TheFirebrandForge for stopping by a recent Show-and-Tell where they shared this project as well:


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
