LightTracer: A photography experiment

(Yes, the name is dumb, I know)

What this is

This is an experimental side-project I did. It's a stick with a bunch of individually-addressable LEDs, with a microcontroller. You load an image onto it, drag it from left to right while taking a long exposure, and it displays the image in the end result.

Why I needed it

I didn't! It's just a fun idea.

How I made it

It took a while! I had a few unstarts, too. More details can be found in the build log!

Special considerations

These are also in the build log!
