RGB Potion

Why.

First up thanks to DFRobot for sending me the parts for this!

So I was thinking about potions and stuff in games and the varied colours of them, red for health, blue for magic and green for stamina usually.

I thought it would be awesome to make a light up one – with fully customisable 255/255/255 RGB colour customisation with a rotary encoder – so I suggested the idea to DFRobot and they kindly agreed to send me some parts.

So I got on with planning…

Key Goals:

  1. Have a wearable Infinity Gauntlet that lights up as in the film.
  2. Interface it with my Artificial Life project.
