What if I told you that you could build a display out of shoe laces!? Well that is exactly what I've done!
Building your own seven segment display is nothing new, it's a very common Arduino project, but I had an idea for this one so I said I'd give it a go, and I am absolutely delighted with how it came out!
It's made from Light up shoe laces (light pipe), some addressable RGB LEDs (Neopixels) and a 3D print.
The idea behind this design was inspired by the Cob LED projects that Unexpected Maker and David Watts are working on.
I would say version 1 of this project is complete, but I do want to improve it. This is a really messy implementation of potentially really cool project. I wanted to just get a version finished to prove out the concept.
