Just started working on this page, but I'm making it live anyways! Below are some Instagram posts showing the process.
More videos of my Engram model from #destinythegame (it's better in the darkness!), showing the colors and twinkling animation. Also the components and a prototype of the electronics core. I'm using an Adafruit Pro Trinket with a Li-Poly battery and Flora accelerometer as the core. Mini Skinny Neopixel strips (30 per meter) are folded into the core to reduce the soldering joints. When shaken, it randomly selects the type of Engram (uncommon through exotic) with a weight toward uncommon/common (white and green). The twinkling pattern is also randomized, but doesn't show up as clearly in video. Obligatory tags: #bungie #arduino #maker #gaming #3dprinting #ledlights #adafruit
My Engram from the game #Destiny is finally complete! Some shots of the finished piece and the last steps of the process. It's wireless, and powered by #arduino and #adafruit #neopixels. Thanks to @bungie @destinythegame for inspiration, and @propelland for helping me make it real! #maker #3dprinting
