I have such a desire to bling something the fuck out with addressable LED pixels & strip and design cool animations to go all over it. I even have all the parts.
I just don’t know *what* needs the bling treatment.
Or even better, it’s just lights turning on gradually. At first it appears to be a single circle being inscribed by one light. But then another light comes on showing that is in fact two degrees of freedom, synchronising to create a circle at the first point. Then another light — it’s 3 degrees. Etc.
@cadence unfortunately I don’t wear dresses, and I don’t really actually want the attention on my body lol. Also I want to be able to look at the thing haha. But Christmas tree is doable, I did the front of my house for Christmas, it’s back in my old account’s media
an entire three piece suit? it'd make a great visibility aid for bike riders, especially if it flashed "DON'T RUN ME DOWN BRO" across the back.
@petrichor I hadn’t seen that. The art idea would be fun but like, I came up with that idea in 5 minutes and it would take years and thousands of $ to pull off, so it ain’t happening
@ThermiteBeGiants FUCK YES I would be so in. And could integrate it with sensing a wheel RPM to sync patterns with real-world speed...
@s0 my little railway has for years run a Halloween Ghost Train that has spooky underfloor and compartment lighting, but I reckon you could take it to the next level. We just need to find a way to afford your services!
