    Not sure if you realize this but they are the components only. there not mounted to strip.
    I agree if there was a panel that could be made up to link together it would make an awesome matrix.

    I bought 100 of those LEDs and made some PCBs to test with, but haven't had a chance to do so yet.

    These sound like they could well be used for a new ACL bulk buy strip for 2013

    Somewhat fiddly to solder though. I wonder how many strobe kits are still sitting in their packets? :D

    Ah crap - that explains the tractor feed on them then!

    But there is these too... http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/BLACK-PCB-5m-WS2811-LED-digital-strip-30leds-m-with-30pcs-WS2811-built-in-the-5050/701799_684974109.html ...which would probably still look pretty tight from a distance

    EDIT: or this 60led/m version http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/4m-WS2811-LED-digital-strip-60leds-m-with-60pcs-WS2811-built-in-the-5050-smd-rgb/701799_638374848.html

    For our hobby we just use a sequencer (like Light Show Pro) to control matrices. The sequencer has the functionality to do scrolling text.
