In this project we’re making a 3D Printed Energy Sword from the Halo video game series. Inside the blades are NeoPixel LEDs which are connected to an Adafruit Feather BLE 32u4 micro-controller.
A 2000mAh lipo battery will provide several hours of energy and can be recharged over USB.The blade is 86cm (34in) tall and the whole sword weighs just under 1 pound.
You can connect to the Adafruit Feather through Bluetooth. The Adafruit Bluefruit LE Connect app for iOS or Android lets you change the animation or color of the LEDs.
