Sorry if there is a better place for this, couldn't find it so went for here.
I have always wanted to try and recreate the staffs from origins (not the full functions, obviously). This would include the basic animations for reloading and firing. I may finally have the opportunity to do this, and seeing the ice staff recently showcased at ZWC made me want to try it even more.
I wanted to know if anyone here has any experience that could help. I would plan to make it out of plastic, with an arduino inside to help with the electronics to move the parts (the twitter was helpful with giving me these tips). I would be appreciative of any tips for such a build, especially with specifics with materials and how to put it together to put the wiring inside.
