Build a zoetrope inspired visual art display with 3D printed parts and Adafruit CRICKIT.
This creates the illusion of motion by rotating a series of acrylic panels that feature engravings of a single frame of animation.
A NeoPxiel illuminates the artwork engraving on the acrylic panels and changes color each frame to make a stunning effect.
A zoetrope is an animation display that gives the illusion of motion by displaying a sequence of frames that progresses over time.
Powered by the Adafruit CRICKIT and Feather M4 running CircuitPython, this uses a DC motor and a photo interrupter to trigger a NeoPixel whenever the sensor detects a break.
The t-slot photo interrupter is mounted to the side of the enclosure and the NeoPixel is mounted on the other end right below the acrylic.
Each time the sensor detects a break, the NeoPixel changes color.
