Magikoopa Wand

You can build Kamek's Magic Wand from Super Mario Bros!

We designed and 3D printed a magic wand inspired by Kamek the Magikoopa in the Super Mario Brothers movie. It’s got motion activated lights and sound with a spinning crystal gem.

Powered by the Adafruit RP2040 Prop-Maker Feather, this advanced prop uses an accelerometer to detect swings and hits that trigger super bright NeoPixels with full sound effects!

 

Prop-Maker Feather

The Prop-Maker Feather was designed for creating advanced props using motion, lights and sound. The LIS3DH accelerometer can detect steps, swings and hits. It has an on-board class-D audio amp for blasting sound effects. For creating stunning lighting effects, the built-in NeoPixel driver and 3W RGB LED driver are essential.

Terminal Block Port - With easy-to-use screw terminals you can quickly connect and disconnect, lights, speakers and buttons!

Servo Connection - Plug any hobby servo with 3 wires into the 0.1" spaced header, and you can have quick motion control!
