One of the things I wanted to do in 2015 was something with fiber optics. I was inspired by the fiber optic work at a Japan Disney Store and a turtle rock at Aulani. I got a plastic rock from Home Depot that is used to cover sprinkler valves. I bought the smallest dremel bit I could and drilled 1000 holes in the shape of a skull and crossbows. I then epoxied fiber optics into those holes. The bundles of fiber optics were then glued into a screw end PVC pipe fitting. These fittings connected to leds to screw terminals on the arduino. I then control the animation of the leds with that Arduino.

All components of my newer rocks can be replaced modularly to make sure that it can be up and running quickly in an escape room, in the unexpected event of a failure. All orders come with replacement parts.
