what is everybody plans for 2016 regarding new elements
to see out 2015 successfully first...!
Mine is the same as the plan I had for 2015: To not do a display. I succumbed to pressure from the neighbours.
Who knows what I'll get done but currently the list is as follows
-add a pixel spinner
-convert existing incandescant spinners to rgb
-add 2 spiral mini trees
-add strobes to mega tree
-add more of the incandescant fairy lights I have lying around as tree wrappers
-either add a 2nd P10 matrix or enlarge and move the current 1
-make my driveway arch interactive so that people can change it from the existing sequence
-animate some faces onto P10 matrix
-remove last of the 240V wireframe props
-replace incandescant icicle lights on the fence with warm white leds
I want to replace my incan snowflakes. I would prefer to do it with pixels but it might just be leds.
Major project will be to add wireless so that i can add a couple of elements on neighbours houses etc and "glow with our show" capabilities.
Change all my lights for minleon. Swap out my mega tree to a 5m ray tree with 2 2.5m Ray trees.
Full size Santa sleigh
Perfect vacuum forming to convert corflute items into acrylic items.
I plan to completely scrap my setup and start from scratch!
Haha ive actually no plans but am sure my wife has plans for me .
I'm thinking of:
- Replacing dumb mini trees with pixel strip, and adding a couple more trees;
- Adding a matrix to side fence. Leaning towards P10s but not ruling out pixel strip;
- Coro elements such as stars and/or presents;
- Maybe a 2d strip mega tree;
- FM transmitter and tune to sign;
- Maybe some singing faces
Yes! I would love some candy canes that are a bit more delicate than the coro ones
Been in a new house will require a total new layout.
Redesign where everything sits in the yard from the controllers to the elements, New extenson leads with null pixels in the right spots, Hope to sit around 6,000 pixels next year a bit jump from the current 2,000. New tune in sign, projecter mounted somewhere so i dont have to pack it up everynight and maybe if everything permits a mega tree
new house new layout
I am still building items for this year..
But next year I want to redo my pixel mega tree as it was a rush job and I used 2 different brands of string, so the pixels don't line up.
I also want to do a Ferris wheel. I started planning that this year, but I got side tracked and built a nutcracker instead.
That is a shame MarcD. Some people just don't know what Christmas is about.
