Description

With twenty WS2812B LEDs (also known as Neopixels) positioned equally around, and a 3-axis accelerometer, the IcosaLEDron is a spherical platform for creating light effects based on accelerations applied to the ball. By creating the IcosaLEDron, we hope to excite makers and programmers to build there own, create and share custom codes, and help build a community of happy owners.

Materials and methods

- rigid plastic pieces in ABS or PLA
- rubber outer print with NinjaFlex Water (semi-transparent) thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) filament.

All parts are printable flat side down and without supports. NinjaFlex may be difficult to use on some printers. To address this we have been experimenting with casting the piece in transparent rubber.
