Potential Topics

Suggested topics from the discussion thread
  • Komby wireless
  • Virtual santa
  • Basics refresher (types of controllers, types of lights, which controller for which light)
  • Vixen 3 (continuing off from where last year's Mini got to)
  • Designing elements on a budget
  • SmartAlec Lights goodies (pi-pixel, enclosure temperature reading ... wirelessly)
  • Enclosures ... and capturing their temperature to display wirelessly (the follow up to what was proven last year ... that enclosures do get warm)
  • ESPixelStick / Arduino
  • P6 Panels (what are they ... how they are similar/different to P10 panels in more ways than just pixel density)
