From the very beginning...
We got an order from the customer to create movable white wings with LEDs.
We have already created big black moving mechanical wings for adults, so this time we should add LEDs and change the color of the feathers.
Their main advantage is the opportunity fold or unfold them with the touch of a button, which is in your hands. The LEDs glow and allow you to remain visible in the dark.
Large white feather mechanical wings with LEDs attract attention on stages of all sizes, including nightclubs or open-air settings during dance shows, meeting guests, and positing near photo zones. With ETEREshop mechanical wings with LEDs you will have enough time to run your show, as they work 2 hours on batteries. If you want to increase working time we can add additional batteries on your request.
See how we created large white feather mechanical wings with LEDs:
First stage of work – looking for ideas and insights
After collecting a number of ideas we created a rough sketch of the adult mechanical movable feather wings with LEDs.
Second stage of the work – creation of a programmed prototype of a backpack and a frame
We have developed 3 designs for large mechanical feather wings with LEDs for the customer to choose from.
The client selected the first option. So we started to develop a detailed sketch.
The third stage of the work is the assembly of the structure in the Fusion 360 program
Stage four is producing a metal frame of the backpack
We ordered the frame of the backpack according to the patterns prepared in advance. During the work, the backpack received some changes. To make it more rigid we made a few holes for linear fasteners. Thanks to the metal frame of the backpack, the load is distributed evenly throughout the whole product.
The metal structure is specially designed so that you can effectively open the construction for your performance or fold for more convenient movement.
When the frame for is ready, we started fastening feathers to the frame. After a huge amount of trials and errors, we made a backpack that fit snugly and tightly to the back and could support their weight.
Stage five is development of the software model of the base and its attachment to the backpack.
After that we developed method of components fastening
Using the sketches, we began to glue the feathers along the folds of the fabric to minimize the feather breaking.
The final, sixth stage of the work – adding LEDs and testing of the costume
200 LEDs have been added to the top of the huge white mechanical wings, which allows you to be seen in the dark.
See how impressive the white mechanical wings look on stage. We used 200 LEDs to make them glow and radiate. And the backlight makes the performance more vivid and fascinating. At the same time, these big mechanical feather wings for adults make the performing actor soft and magical.
