Progress! Light it up!

A project log for Warehouse 13 Tesla Gun

A simple replica of the tesla gun from one of my favorite shows. My first project, hoping to get it light up in different brightness levels.

So I've been making progress on the lighting guts for the gun. I wanted green lights for the dials, yellow flickering lights for the rear vacuum tubes, and a blue flashing light when it fires, based on this YouTube video of the prop replica.

Here is what I have so far. I need to get the blue neopixel ring to flash when fired. I probably will switch it out for a single pixel light, but this is what I have on hand for now. I would like the intesity of the blue light to change as well, based on the setting on the knob. So the next step will be getting a potentiometer hooked up to this mess.

But here's how it's working so far.
