Make a light up Master Sword from the Legend of Zelda! This build has motion activated sound effects and LED animations!

The Adafruit Feather and Prop-Maker FeatherWing has you need to add lights and sounds to your projects. NeoPixel LEDs are fitted inside the blade.

This uses the built-in accelerometer and audio amp. When you swing it around, it’ll make different sound effects. On heavy hits it makes flashes and fade the colors of the LEDs.

It has pulsing animation and an idle sound effect that loops in the background. You can make this fit your project by customizing the colors or adding different sound effects. You can recharge the battery or even add new sounds with the USB port. The sword mounts on a computer, just like a USB Drive!

Timelapse Tuesday Playlist:

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
