Things used in this project

Hardware components:
Abx00004 iso both
Arduino MKR1000 & Genuino MKR1000
We used the MKR1000 with Windows Remote Arduino to stream state over to the FizViz widget.
×1
Adafruit TB6612 1.2A DC/Stepper Motor Driver Breakout Board
×1
Adafruit NeoPixel Digital RGBW LED Strip - White PCB 144 LED/m - 1m
Different densities of NeoPixel strip will work, but the 144 pixels/m strips give the brightest and most localized effect.
×1
Sanyo Pancake Stepper Motor: Bipolar, 200 Steps/Rev, 50×11mm, 4.5V, 1 A/Phase
Almost any stepper motor will work fine - we liked the Sanyo Pancake Stepper because we could hide it in the frame of RotoMoto very easily.

Adafruit 5V 10A switching power supply
×1
Reed Switch : Coto Technology CT10-1540-G1

Hand tools and fabrication machines:
ShopBot Buddy CNC
We used our ShopBot to cut out the Mount and Acrylic for the RotoMoto FizViz example. There are a lot of different ways you could do that ranging from a Laser Cutter down to hand tools. So, don't despair if you don't have your own ShopBot (although, we do recommend getting one....)
LulzBot TAZ5
We used our TAZ5 to 3D Print a lot of the plastic parts and assembly components. Having a 3D printer around when building FizViz Widgets is extremely handy. It doesn't have to be as big or bad as the TAZ, but you'll find it super useful for building parts for your widgets.
Form Labs Form1+
The Form1+ is not a mandatory tool, but it's incredible resolution and accuracy allowed us to print some parts that we'd otherwise have to have found off-the-shelf or machined. This saved us time, and let us build some shafts and pieces instead of having to track them down.
Autodesk Inventor
