Light Stick Painting

James Botwina

This week at TechAhoy we built a light paint stick using components from Adafruit’s Adabox 009. This project uses sequences of LED flashes to display a pattern of light. In order to show the light’s trail we increased the shutter speed on a camera to allow the camera’s digital sensor to be exposed to light longer. The pixels of the light stick are extremely bright and can be coded to emit different patterns and colors.

Just in time for Halloween, we were able to upload a flying bat pattern to the light stick! These are just some of the examples available for us to use.

What spooky image would you like to see using our new device?

Come by the space and take a picture with a gallery of designs we already have in stock!
