    Here is a quick video of my first lot of pixels I have installed. There are 77 milky balls run fr a p2 and lightshowpro. This is my first time sequencing and mapping controller setup an sequencing took about an hour. I have 100 milky stars 8 candy canes and a 6m 2016 pixel mega tree still to go. Enjoy

    Looks great, The 360 degree balls do look impressive.
    I hope you don't get too much rain your way as ive seen the Ray Wu milky balls and I wasn't too impressed with the water protection. It would be great for you to report on how these perform over the season.

    We have had about 3 days of heavy rain and so far so good. They look pretty good and sealed and haven't seen any water ingress. He may have improved the design. It's a bit hard to see but in the sequence I turn everything white and I can't see any colour change. 77 balls about 16m long

    Nice job. I like the look of the balls and light emitting ability.

    I had asked Ray earlier this year about getting some of these with better waterproofing, but he eventually came back and said it wasn't going to be possible. Wonder if he has changed them or not, or perhaps they look worse than they are.


    I'm also using a few of these (about 300) on the front of my balcony in a matrix style - but they'll be sheltered from the rain mostly - hopefully I don't get any issues.

    Mine sit under the eaves so sheltered from direct rain just sideways rain and my sprinkler. I planned to have 120 but when I put them up the arches were way to big so cut it back to 77

    I'm a fan of the milky covers. They give a nice glow rather than a sharp light. But are more expensive to ship because of the size.

    Waterproofing the balls from Ray is not hard at all. I did 240 of them in about 4 hours
