Fruit Machine

This features emojis from Circuit Playground and works just like a fruit style slot machine. The handle is 3D printed and features a print-in-place spring loaded mechanism. It actuates a small push button and triggers animations that look a lot like a slot machine.

The display is powered by an Adafruit Feather and the RGB Matrix FeatherWing. It also has a speaker and amp for playing MP3s. The FeatherWing is designed to be modular and snap fits on the back of the RGB matrix.

Using CircuitPython you can quickly show text, bitmaps, and animations on a number of different RGB Matrices. It’s designed to work with 64x32 RGB matrices. 


Black LED Acrylic

A sheet of black LED acrylic used to diffuse the RGB LED Matrix. From their website:

It looks like a matte black acrylic when it is not lit, but add a light behind it and watch it transform. This fantastic material has the ability to transmit light of any color.

Black LED acrylic is used to diffuse the LEDs that are otherwise harsh and over exposed. This material features a matte finish and has the ability to transmit any color of light. That makes it perfect for bringing out the vibrance in the colors of the LEDs.

The 3D printed frame is designed with a slot on the side so it’s easy to insert a sheet of Black LED acrylic.
