About 11 months ago I started this journey to build a Star Wars droid. It’s crazy to see it “finished”. I put that in quotes because are these things ever really finished?
Meet EM-3T or Emmett. He’s a cranky little Astromech droid but he’s really good at his job repairing X-Wing and Y-Wing fighters.
All code, models, and designs for Emmett are on my github site.

What started as just the Neutrino Wand has turned into building a full pack for my son this Halloween. The goals were pretty simple. Replicate the movie pack as best as I could, keep it low weight, and give him some stuff to play with. Here is what I came up with…
The result is about 80% scale, around 8 pounds on the back, and completely mirrored as my son is left handed. The pack is 3D printed using a PVC backpack frame and some other odds and ends to finish it off. The lights and sounds are based off an Arduino Nano that is controlling a bunch of Neopixel LED’s and an Adafruit Audio FX Board. The entire code, models, and PC boards used can be found on github here:
