Acrylic rods over an individually addressable LED matrix (WS2812b) encased in a single solid piece of acrylic and driven by an Arduino Pro Mini. I shaved down the acrylic over each LED to just a few millimeters to create a natural diffusing lens. This diffusion, in combination with the acrylic rods, reveals many subtle hues that might otherwise be hard to observe directly with the human eye.

It also reacts to external lights sources (and sometimes its own…still working on that). When there is a lot of light it gets brighter and vice versa. The patterns and colors are completely random and the Arduino script is based off DedeHai’s original linked here, though Micah and Adafruit's Fadecandy is a fun alternative pixel driver as well.
