    It just had to happen. We had a car show in town that involved a light parade and I couldn't help myself.
    Managed to keep the Dads and the Kids happy this time.

    Pi b+
    64 technicolor pixels
    2 bits of digital strip
    a P2
    and cranked it out of the car stereo

    C'mon Steve. If you are going to pixel the car you have to slip the Knight Rider theme and lights in there as well.

    For those of us who aren't so clever, can you post a bit of a "how to"? Are there any special fuses, relays or other stuff required?

    Nice


    Doing Kit would be cool. :eek:


    Yea I agree, a nice how too video would go a long way.
    We can do that to our cars around here, but cannot do it while driving as it would be a nice hefty ticket I am sure.
