Giant LEGO Minifig

The Sketchy Maker wanted to do something big for Star Wars day, but with only two weeks to put it together, this was a rather tall order.

The idea of a giant LEGO Luke Skywalker with working lightsaber came to mind, and thankfully a Teensy 3.2 and Prop Shield was at hand, greatly facilitating the electronic aspects of the project.

The minifig itself is 3d-printed, with a servo to move the lightsaber-toting arm up and down. Ninety WS2812B LEDs light said saber, and a small speaker adds sound effects. The Sketchy Maker finished the project in time for its May the Fourth debut, and put it on display for the local community to enjoy.
