A mech arm. Frame with different colors of translucent plastic, led lights and the 1.8 inch tft from adafruit inside.
I have the Arduino UNO r3, several led lights, and the 1.8” tft 18-bit screen. A strip of 3 color LED lights.
I’m not sure if I’ll be adding EL wire or not.
As I work on it, I’ll upload photos of the arduino/tft part.
Probably add a vent fan, to keep my arm cool.

Looks like the Radio Shack RBG LED strip is going to be a pain. See this post on my site.

Buying the Tri-color LED strip from Radio Shack was a big mistake. This puts a serious crimp in my plans to have this ready for the one convention I attend each year.
Update: March 1, 2014.
Due to various things, I’ll be making lights from diffuse common cathode LEDs.
I have one to work, and an idea on using a small printed circuit board from Radio Shack to get several of these LEDs to work at the same time with one arduino uno r3.
I have a small 12vdc fan to keep my arm cool.

Not currently working on this. Probably start back up in August of this year.
