In this guide, we're building a Dune inspired movie replica using 3D Printing and electronics. Beast Rabbon's pistol is a unqiue harkonnen weapon that was never seen in David Lynch's 1984's Dune. There are only two images of the pistol on the net and currently isn't anyway to get one.
This project combines the original pistol with functional features. A Trinket micro-controller reads an EZ4 rangefinder and writes the distance in centimeters onto a 14-segment LED display.
Be sure to walk through the following guides to get yourself familiar with the Trinket micro-controller, LED Backpacks, and distance sensor.
- MaxBotix LV-EZ Ultrasonic rangefinder
- Trinket Micro-Controller (3V or 5V)
- Quad Alphanumberic Display - 0.54" 14-segment LED
- 3 x AAA battery holder
- Slide Switch
