3D print this Frankenstein's Monster head, nicknamed Frank, to build a light-up Halloween decoration. NeoPixels illuminate the inside of the model for a clean and even lighting effect. Frank's brains are powered by a QT Py board, making this build nice and compact.

Capacitive Touch

Frank's bolts have copper tape for capacitive touch. Tapping either bolt will change the colors of the NeoPixels.
