Magical Wand (“Lumos”!)

Inspiration

“Lumos” is a spell in Harry Potter movies which is able to light up wizards’ wands.

My wand designs

How does is work?

I’m planning to use a vibration sensor or an accelerometer as my input, and have light patterns as the output. The electronics portion will be hid in the sleeves. With the vibration sensor, the wand will light up when i wave the wand, which is similar to the spell “lumos” in the movies.

I will try to use chopstick as the core, and use blue foam, hot glue to add patterns and more details on the wand.
