It took over a year of getting all the parts together and is back lit my nanoleaf panels (hence the lines and gaps at the edge). A worthy trade off for the fun effects!

      The nanoleaf was mostly because I had them in a cupboard and thought this would be a fun use, but I already have designed on a V2 with better lighting and accurate static borders

          It’s by Suricata! He has some MSDs on deviantart and did some lcars for STO. This is his latest Voyager one which he was kind enough to share

        You could also control the Nanoleaf panels to get them to flicker when you’re taking damage

        WLED + microprocessor [ESP32] + neopixel LEDs

        A lot of my house has custom made WLED fixtures I control with my Home Assistant setup. I also just setup a hyperion server and that is a TON of fun.

          Looks awesome! Do you know what a good method for evenly backlighting an MSD like this would be?

    At meetings, do you keep fiddling with it?

    And when presenting something, do you pretend to read from it?

      Yes.

      The great thing about the acrylic top layer is that if I want too, I can use whiteboard markers

        I always wondered who cleans all the marker “art”/graffiti from those panels on Voyager.

        “It would appear that someone drew what is commonly referred to as ‘cock & balls’ style of art on my long-range scanner console, again, perhaps in an attempt to achieve humour. I shall review the security logs and crew medical data to find whoever did this.”

        “Acknowledged. And find out where are they getting whiteboard markets, it might be some unknown alien technology.”

      I did a tweet which shows a few of the options. But anything Nanoleaf can do, I can do here. Including custom set ups

      It’s a Herman Miller given to me by my work.

      I picked the colour for the Excelsior vibes it gave me
