LEAP#192 Sagrada Família model with LED effects
Then you see the work in progress - the cranes, scaffolding, workers scurrying around the site. But that is what I think really brings it to life. This is not a frozen, finished statement of something other-worldy. It's a vibrant expression of the hope and aspirations of a whole bunch of people working together.
In other words, it is the ultimate maker project! Personally, I think it will be a sad day when someone declares it actually "finished".
Now at the extreme other end of the maker-scale is this neat little paper nano Sagrada Familia kit that I picked up in my travels.
I've "electrified" it to some extent with some LowVoltageGlowingLEDs that animate the background, just running off a 1.5V supply. Although I think I could have slowed down the LEDs even further.
A nice effect I think..
As always, all notes, schematics and code are in the Little Arduino Projects repo on GitHub.
