In this project, I wanted to create a lightsaber-like light-up sword using a neopixel strip. The project would just be for static display not actually fighting with. Rather than print an entire hilt I brought a toy one which worked out pretty well as I could use the sound board in the toy in conjunction with the light-up blade! To top it off I added an encoder to the base of the hilt to change the color to what ever mode I am in on the day.
I have a few videos on this project check out the playlist here.
You can make one of these also with the parts below.
