DIY Programmable Fiber Optic Fairy Wings


Holy crap. Look at that!

And how about this…


And this…


As far as we’re concerned, the technology used to build these programmable fiber optic fairy wings is basically magic—magic that you can harness. Instructables user MikaelaHolmes notes:

For this latest experiment I applied the idea to some relatively simple fairy wings, hoping to create a sparkling enchanting fiber optic costume piece fit for a real fairy. To power my wings I made an easy lighting module with leds, a battery and a microcontroller that allows me to program the color of the fibers, or give them different patterns or fades.

Head on over to Instructables for the step-by-step on how to make your own pair.
