    Now that is sure a show off hat for sure..
    Just think of the willing people that will donate money if i asked with a hat like that on..
    But sadly i fear the price could be scary

    With about 200 pixels required plus a controller and a power source which pretty much has to be a battery to get portability you wouldn't get much change out of a few hundred dollars to do a hat like that.

    Welcome to ACL.
    Do you have any details on the build, I love the hat.

    What battery power source did you use and how long did it run on those batteries

    Thanks

    I would love to see how it is built as well. Would like to make some for my Grandchildren when they are outside with me during the lighting season.

    Hi,


    I still working on translating my website, but essentialy, is some rgb led strip controlled by a cortex m3 microcontroller. The battery is 2 5700mah cell connected in parallel, it give me around 8hours of battery life. Enough for some crazy night !
