Dave's Birthday Cane 2022
This Enlighted cane is part of an illuminated outfit we created for a long-time client's birthday celebration, consisting of an LED suit and several accessories.
The top of the cane is decorated with a clear plastic faceted disco ball that is filled with a spiral of RGB LED pixels. The pixels are animated in a variety of patterns that match the rest of the suit lighting, including blue chasing and some multi-color and rainbow effects. A blue laser is mounted in the center of the ball, aimed upward, and shining through a layer of beam-splitting optics (for safer use around people's eyes).
The RGB LED pixels and the laser can be turned on separately, or together.
The clip below shows some of the animation patterns for the cane.
