LSOS Development Breadboard – simulate Pixel, String & RGB LED Blades!

The breadboard can simulate any type of blade and is a really nice tool for developing arduino based sabers. Since I’m not using any high power LEDs or strings, a DynaOhm is all it needs, making the transistors that would normally be required unnecessary. If I want to use a high ppower LED, there is plenty of room to drop in a few transistors on the board and connect a harness for the LED. The pixel strip is covered in a strip of white vinyl tape because staring at those things will make you blind!

One thing I didn’t note is that the power source is an old mobile phone battery attached to the bottom. The battery has about the same capacity as the 18650 cells I normally use, and it’s totally sufficient for powering this setup.

This is also a fun demonstration tool for people who have an interest in what goes into building sabers from scratch (and really makes one appreciate the DIYino boards!).
