    Halloween 2016

    This year, I added 8 channel 2811 strip diy "floods" in the windows and a 17 x 36 ping pong ball grid matrix. I also added an animatronic with moving torso, arms, and head. Enjoy... "BEST" Halloween Light Show: A Return to Freddy Fazbears "Goodbye" by TryHardNinja - YouTube

    IC RGB Pixel with a narrower beam angle.

    Almost all the RGB pixels I see on Ray's site (and others) have a beam angle of at least 120 dg. I want to build some DIY wall washers that can be daisy chained and controlled with e1.31. However, to do this, I need to find an RGB pixel that has a narrower beam angle. So far, the only thing...

    My Annual Halloween Show: Five Nights at Freddy's

    Switched it up this year and did something completely different. Five Nights at Freddy's is a VERY popular horror/survival game here in the U.S. that my kids love so I made my display based around the 4 characters from the game. To be honest, this was BY FAR the most difficult time I've had as...

    Controlling single color LED strip

    Thanks for the responses. I figured any DMX controller would work but didn't realize a pixel type controller like the ECG2 would also work.

    Controlling single color LED strip

    For halloween, I'm using some 5050 single color purple/UV strips. How would I control these? Here's a link to the light in question. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ultra-Violet-5M-SMD-5050-LED-Strip-300LEDs-Waterproof-IP65-UV-Purple-DC-12V-NEW-/201066358258?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2ed07d25f2

    Last Minute Christmas

    Thanks a bunch. Although an attorney by trade (yes I know, an ATTORNEY) I nearly majored in music in college. I guess this is my outlet. ;)

    Elia Ware Lights 2014 Christmas Show

    You Aussies seem to do the pixels better than what I've seen here in the States. Awesome show and I LOVE the cleanliness of the elements. Well done.

    Last Minute Christmas

    My issue with the Loya show is its a complete commercial enterprise. Its even sponsored by madrix and Loya Insurance. I'm much more impressed with people who, you know, actually create their OWN light show/display. ;)

    Last Minute Christmas

    Thanks everyone for the compliments. Right now in the States, this guy's show in El Paso is being shown everywhere. Honestly, I think its WAY too much and, even worse, the guy who owns the house simply hires a company to do the set up and sequencing for him. With that said, the pure number of...

    Last Minute Christmas

    This is a last minute show I sequenced in the last 30 days after Halloween. Given time constraints, I was only able to do one song. Enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVHOp6bSaho&feature=youtu.be

    2014 Halloween Light Show: Internet Friends by Knife Party

    Last video of the year. A kind of weird song. Its a track called "trauma" by trance artist N'to. This is the "Worakls" Remix. I first heard the song on a video made by some crazy Russian dudes who climbed this huge tower in Shanghai freehand. [/size]Doesn't really have a Halloween feel to it but...
