Hi,
I know this isn't Christmas related, but seeing the other Ferris Wheel posts, I thought I would share this here. Here is a Lego Ferris wheel that my wife and I created for and exhibited last weekend at Brickvention, the Lego fan conference in Melbourne. It is running FPP on a Raspberry Pi, with sequences created in xLights. It is 1 metre in diameter and has 528 pixels on RGB strips. The power and data for the pixels are running through a slip ring in the hub of the wheel.


Any questions, feel free to ask.

That was very very cool! I guess this means you now have 1,584 channels for your signature!

That's bloody Fantastic, It'd be great to see a behind the scenes and how you have the connections running... the attention to detail is what I love seeing in displays, have always wondered how realistic it would be to have a Malcolm (movie) style train running around the yard.
