Props & Electronics
Build a 3D printed prop with a realistic looking flame! Use NeoPixels and GEMMA M0 to create a faux yet realistic looking torch. Hidden inside the torch is a mini fan and silk fabric. Use CircuitPython to easily program GEMMA M0 and NeoPixels.
3D Printing & Crafting
We designed and 3d printed the prop to house all of the electronics and features a modular design that allows parts to easily be swapped out. The flame is made from pieces of a silk that are cut and taped to a crossbar fitted over the neopixel jewel.
Inspired by Nick Dimelow's Medieval Torch project.
