Strobes do not appear to be random. They sre in prefect sync.

Finally got 8 of my strobe sticks done.

Got parts for 8 more but just ran out of time.

ACL strobe demo

If you wondered what 128 strobes all under computer control could look like wonder no more.

Well worth all he effort.

Thanks again Phil for making it possible.
And the Pic code came from Phil Short.

Seems all good things come from Phil.

That looks absolutely fantastic.

Would not have thot you could do this with the strobes.

I'd love to see how you mounted the strobes on the "sticks".

I'm assuming that you used something like the Tiger128 to run the strobes.

Need details on how you did this, cause I have some ideas for next year!

Not even close.

Just a MAX232 for communications, and a PIC16F722 to control the 16 channels in one stick.

Will post a full write up after the season and I have more time.

Any chance on a picture in the daylight? I'd like to see how you mounted them.

I like it.

Way different than the random flashes you normally see from strobes

Well done
