I really liked the RGB spinners that Bevo and kool-lites posted about. I was thinking that it would be nice to make an 8 spoke one using 6803 (digital) RGB strip. To make construction and wiring easier, an 8 output controller could be housed in the centre hub section. Whilst a PIXAD8 would work, it's a bit of an overkill for only a few channels per spoke. For example, 500mm spokes would only be 5 pixels (15 channels) each, for a total of only 120 channels. 5 pixels (15 RGB LEDs) spokes would allow "ring" effects (grow / shrink) in addition to the "spin" effects used with non-digital strip versions. The required 4m (8 x 500mm) of digital strip could be cut from a single 5m length, with left over for replacement spares. You could also get 8 x 600mm (6 pixels / 18 LEDs) out of a 5m strip with just 200mm left over. I think a P-DMX -> 8x SPI board could be done that has on-board 12V regulator for the 6803 strip and a 5V regulator for the micro, etc. A 3A regulator for the 12V should suit the 500mm (2.4A) or 600mm (2.88A) spoke versions. I'd probably use the "round robin" method of sending the data to the 8 pixel outputs. This would normally be a stretch for 8 outputs, but as there are only 120 (or 144) channels to distribute, I think it will be fine. Anyway, I thought I'd put the idea out there. I realise that it's getting close for this Christmas, but it may interest people for next year. Never hurts to throw ideas around any time of year!
