Cosplay Props with NeoPixels
In this project, you'll learn how to adapt the circuit and code used in this build for your cosplay props. The electronics used in this prop are great for cosplay weapons or really anything that needs to flash when you press a button.
Triggered Lighting Effects
Inside the barrel is a single NeoPixel and mounted behind the trigger is a little push button, so when the trigger is squeezed, it actuates the button and lights up the NeoPixel. The Adafruit Trinket and 500mAh lipo battery are fitted inside the magazine and the entire prop is 3D printed.
