This is a simple dome lighting scheme for a Star Wars Rebels Chopper build. Chopper's dome is pretty sparse. There are 2 eyes, a holo projector, and a power level graph.
This setup uses and arduino nano, 3 individual neopixels, and 2 neopixel sticks. Only 13 of the 16 LED's are actually used on the sticks as that is all the is visible in the area.
- 1 arduino nano. You get 3 for ~$13: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0713XK923
