TOS Enterprise warp coil effect

Hello,

i want to replace the original light brick from the Mega Bloks Enterprise Modell because it‘s to short and with battery. I’ve already added some beacon lights so I have already a power connection over usb.

I want try to make a more accurate effect than the current one.

My current idea is to use some solid yellow leds and combine it with a green and a red led combined with a flickering effect generator.

but I would like to imitate the rotation effect as in the attached YouTube video. May I could use this new rotary leds, but they have only two „beams“.

Has someone of you a nice idea to realize the effect?

  • Frank Großmann Hi Frank, I did a very quick and basic test.  This is the type of effect we might be able to do.  Is it what you are looking for?

  • This looks very good! :)

    I would add some additional yellow and green leds with glow effect to simulate colliding particles... which parts did you use for the rotation effect?

  • Frank Großmann Hi, unfortunately we are only able to get 4 LEDS for the effect-- that is how our effect controllers are designed.  Max of 4 LEDs and they must be white.  I didn't use any special parts-- just put four of our standard Pico LEDs inside the back of the round transparent orange parts.
