Dark Glow


September 2018

My dorm this year is called “Jerry,” and the theme for this year ended up being “Stranjerry Things.” As part of the decorations, I made a glowing sign with a Teensy 3.2 and Adafruit Neopixels.

I laser-cut two sides out of acrylic, separated by standoffs. The faceplate has “Stranjerry Things” cut to look like the Stranger Things logo. The neopixels were mounted on this piece, and a piece of illusion film was mounted on the other side to add some interesting reflections. The Teensy controls the neopixels to gently move colors across the board.

Let me know what you think!
