Laser Painting with Motion Control and Arduino

Do you like lasers, motion control, neo-pixels, or glow in the dark art? Of course you do, so why not combine them all! Using various supplies you can ‘paint’ a picture using laser light. Motion control will let you actuate (aka move) the servos which in turn controls where the laser points. The laser will leave a line on the glow in the dark material and then slowly fade away. The art you make is up to you! Why would you want to do this. Well besides being cool, this project is a good exploration of servos, accelerometers, neo-pixel rings, and control systems. The challenge is combining the various parts and getting them all working together. You will be guided through the steps and technical ideas, and left at the end with your own motion controlled light painter!”
