Introduction: Programmable Infinity Mirror

看到纳米叶,就像那里的灯光装饰了很多YouTubers的背景,以为我会尝试通过使用三角形踢起一个凹口,并使它们是无限镜子。

Took inspiration from a number of Instructables as well as many others out there on the Internet, and used the programming code from a previous Instructable of mine (//www.sledutah.com/Totally-Lit-Programmable-RGB-LED-Acrylic-Sign/) where I lit up engraved acrylic with addressable RGB LEDs.

补给品:

  • Addressable RGB LEDs (this is what I used https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01CDTELBE/ref=p...
  • Arduino nano
  • Acrylic (clear)
  • one way mirror film (this is what I used https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07D3KF4ZQ/ref=p...
  • 烙铁
  • connector wires (this is what I used https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07GGPQXFC/ref=p...
  • super glue
  • E6000 glue
  • masking tape
  • utility knife

Step 1: Cut Frame

Created a shape based upon the distance between LEDs on the RGB LED strip, and designed two sizes, one with 9 LEDs per side and another with 6 LEDs per side. Added a cutout portion so that the wires could easily be pulled out from the side.

Based upon the thickness of the material, had to cut out a few wall portions and glue them together.

Since is used pieces of acrylic here cut out with a laser cutter, superglue worked great in gluing them together

Step 2: Attach RGB LEDs

我将RGB LED剪切到27和18的条带,然后在线连接器上焊接,确保我与LED条带的数据和外侧的插头端一致。

Using E6000 glue, I was able to secure them to the wall inserts, and used masking tape to clamp them down until the glue dried

Step 3: Prepare Mirror Finish

For the end pieces of clear acrylic, I cut out one way mirror film to an approximate size, and then carefully peeled away the film (most have a thin film layer covering the sticky side of the mirror film), sprayed some water on it and the full acrylic triangle, and carefully placed it on top.

Using a credit card, the mirror film can be smoothed out, and bubbles can be pushed out from under the film.

Step 4: Prepare Arduino

Programmed an Arduino nano with the attached code that has a number of patterns that I've designed.

附带的代码适用于8个三角形,其中4个是27个LED和4,为18个LED。

Feel free to modify the code as you see fit. As can be seen in the intro video, you can see the patterns that I've added, which optionally makes for nice Christmas decorations if you stand them up on a table top or mantle.

Arduino是强大的enough to power up the 5V RGB LEDs, so I used the 5V from the board to power up the strip. The data line is D4, and I used D5 as an input switch, that looks for a button up scenario to switch over to the next pattern in the program.

Step 5: Put It All Together

I glued the full triangles with the mirror film side in towards the LEDs, so that there would be less of a distance to reflect, and it turned out nicer this way (the other way around would cause additional reflections based upon the thickness of the acrylic).

Hope you enjoyed this Instructable... looking forward to see what you create out of this. I am particularly thinking of other shapes, such as a hexagon, and potentially making connector style additions to the frame, so that there aren't any wires externally, but the pieces just click in to one another.

享受!

    Dude, how much would you charge for one of these?

    Good question. Was just checking in the price of a starter kit for the nanoleaf brand lights... Yikes they're expensive!

    Cost of materials to make 4 large and 4 small is about $80, which includes connectors and Arduino Nano (knock off)

    $20 for the acrylic
    $20 for the RGB LEDs
    $10 for the wiring
    $10 Arduino Nano
    20美元的反光镜电影

    我不是在考虑制作这些待售,但如果我是,如果可能为Arduino的8件8美元收取180美元

    Oh, wow. I was thinking of making one of these, but there really expensive for something that just looks cool and doesn't serve any purpose.

    Reminds me of Inception. Very clean result! Well done!

    谢谢....切割不采取激光长......胶合需要一些时间,但也没有那么长时间。焊接全部取决于您的专业水平。把我带走了几天的设计和建设。

    Good to know! I’ll definitely do this whenever I have some time!
