Use LEDs and a Microcontroller to Make an Altered Carbon Cortical Stack

In Altered Carbon, the Cortical Stacks are key to being able to transfer consciousness from one human body to another. Replica Prop Forum (RPF) user BetaThingz crafted a replica of the device, obviously made for display or maybe cosplay, not attempting to use. It glows thanks to LEDs, and the builder is hoping to modify it to respond to touch. They say:

It has been scaled based on a screen shot from the show where they are in a cigarette ash tray. I’ve got them at just under 45mm wide and about 15mm tall.

The one in the gif was done in Sterling Silver.

It contains a small lipo pouch cell, an ATTiny microcontroller, some 1206 SMD LEDs, and a magnetic reed switch.

Visit Imgur to see how the light pulsates.
