Add the portal attachment to a Versa Gate. Then add some PVC pipe to the turntable to elevate the portal (see photo). Spin the turntable for 20 seconds with a blue lighting scene then reverse the turntable direction while changing the lighting scene and color.

Candy Cane
Skill: Intermediate
Hang three portals vertically (see photo). Daisy chain the LED strings. Code an LED animation that links all three portals as one long scene. Have the turntable move at a slow speed in one direction, then blink the leds to signal a direction change. Now reverse the turntable.
