I'm happy to announce the next member of my Proto Saber Platform, the Proto Knight
For more info: Home of the Arduino Saber
Because a good demo says more than a thousand words, I put here a video to show how the Knight expands on the capabilites of the Duel, bringing you a full effect saber board for both in-hilt and neopixel blades.
Some highlights and new features:[Lock-up on Clash]:
timing accurate triggering of the lockup effect on a Clash[Blaster-block-on-the-move]:
activate blaster bolt block mode to deflect incoming shots by gesture detection[Saber Skins]:
now this needs a bit of more revealing. It is a unique feature of the Knight, which allows you to personalize the saber for different use scenarious. The Knight comes with three skins: Warrior, Guardian and Hero.
- Warrior lets you concentrate on saber duels, with swings and clahes (i.e. similar to Proto Duel)
- Guardian will add blaster deflect functionality to protect the saber wielder and allies.
[Extended saber fonts]:
- Hero will unlock the full set of features, including single button triggered lockup and blaster bolt deflects for cons and showcasing.
8xswings, 8xclashes, as well as lockup and 2xblaster sounds
