Do you like Funko Pop! figurines? Do you have a Funko Pop! collection? Or are you co-hosts with somebody with a serious Funko Pop! addiction?

If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, then today's "Know How" is for you! With an Arduino, a ring of WS2812 LEDs, and a few 3D-printed parts, we're going to create a disco stand to make your Funko... FUNKY!

Also... there's a 50/50 chance that we burn ourselves.

Project Summary:
Using an Arduino nano and a WS2812 16-LED Ring, we're going to create a universal stand for "FunkoPop" models. The finished project will have two controls for LED brightness and Animation patterns and will can be reprogrammed without dissasembling the unit.
Parts List:
But the REAL price (if you're willing to buy in bulk) is closer to $6
3D Parts List
1. FPv4_Base
2. FPv4_Diffuser
3. FPv4_ArduinoHoldDown
4. FPv4_LED Shelf
5. FPv4_ButtonStop
