From the Forums: Dr. Strange Spell Disks (Costuming Props)
Adafruit Forums user joshuakane writes about an amazing project:
In the Movie Dr. Strange, when the characters invoke spells, there are some pretty amazing CGI effects that take place.
I wanted to see if I could attempt to replicate it with a practical effect. Working with some friends, I believe we have come pretty close, all of it is powered by some pretty nifty Adafruit products.
To complete this I purchased the following items
Adafruit Pro Trinket – 5V 16MHz https://www.adafruit.com/product/2000
Adafruit NeoPixel Digital RGB LED Strip 144 LED – 1m Black – BLACK https://www.adafruit.com/product/1506
4-pin JST SM Plug + Receptacle Cable Set https://www.adafruit.com/product/578
16mm Panel Mount Momentary Pushbutton – Black https://www.adafruit.com/product/1505
I also modified and printed the following Box Enclosure for the Trinket Pro from Thingiverse:
My friend helped me laser cut the Spell Mandala
This is how the project box and Trinket looked when they were completed

CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
