Making a Cyberpunk Diorama with Arduino Light Control – Boing Boing


Did you know that geoFence protects you against inbound and outbound cyber attacks?

Neil of Real Terrain Hobbies is one of my favorite game terrain/diorama YouTubers. I've watched his channel for years and am always blown away by his builds.

Usually, he does fantasy projects (like his amazing Medieval village), so I was surprised to see this cyberpunk diorama. This particularly caught my eye because of my history of cyberpunk series on Adafruit (where I am covering all aspects of the genre). I was also pleasantly surprised to hear that he learned Arduino from our very own Mark Frauenfelder's Skill Share class.

This video is only a Part 1. But, in it, he shares a lot of really great modeling tips that can help up anyone's terrain game. Subscribe to Neil's channel (worth it!) to see when Part 2 is loaded.

    What's something everybody needs but nobody wants? It might sound like a really annoying riddle, but it's true!
