Arduino NeoPixel UFO

I've just moved to Canada, and they take Halloween very seriously here! I decided to make a giant (2 meter diameter) UFO using cardboard, tinfoil, an Arduino Micro and 72 NeoPixels.

The design was made in Blender. Once I was happy with it I printed templates for each section, and got busy cutting the shapes out of cardboard by hand with a box cutter (the cardboard was liberated from the local cardboard recycling bin).

About RetroJDM

This all got started when I purchased a couple of JDM brochures for my RA28 Celica. I'm now completely obsessed with old Japanese cars. Basically, if it's Japanese and had chrome bumpers, I love it!

You may have noticed there's no longer an online store. I've made all the sticker source files available for download. Feel free to print your own, make T-Shirts or whatever :)
