This is a build log for my Mewtwo cloning jar desk lamp. I used an old milk frother, wooden box, mewtwo toy, clay, wires, a magnet, fish tank air pump, neopixel ring lights, arduino and water.
For the showcase video, I used flash paper for fire and used my grinder on steel to create sparks.
I cut apart, filled with clay and repainted an old Mewtwo toy from Carls Jr.
An aquarium pump provided the bubbles.
To give a metallic look to the base, I took a wooden box and wrapped foil tape around it, before roughing it up.
I used neopixel ring lights and an arduino nano to create the lighting effects.
Here are all the components I used to make it:
Norpro Milk Frother Deluxe 16 oz Glass Cappuccino/Latte Froth Master 16 Ounces
Tetra Whisper Air Pump (Non-UL)
ArtMinds Wooden Box
$7.30, used approx $1.50
