3D Hangouts – Darksabers, Dice Rollers and Buddha Boxes

This week we unleash the Darksaber to the world! We’ll walkthrough the learn guide and discuss the assembly while taking questions from the chats. Live demoes featuring the Bluefruit connect app with a few swing and hits for good measure. We have an awesome dice roller for Timelapse Tuesday that uses a piece of transparency film. We also are delighted to share our first make of the Rezz inspired NeoPixel wearable glasses!
