That almost had me in tears, nice bit of room moddage!
lol thats great.
lmao at all the flashing. cool. how long did it take you to do that lol
LOL , thats just great! I would do something similar if I knew where to hide all the wires.
I have a sound module laying around, I'm thinking about installing a blue led inside the tube of my sub. That would be uber-cool.
Theres only 1 LED per 'cluster' the wire is just bare steel wire I have wrapped around plastic pushpins that are stuck into the wall. I put up a string of 5 of them at first to see what it was like then I just kept going until my entire room was surounded in them. It really only took like 1 hour to put it all up.
I used the sound activation module I bought from here
Wow... holy sheezus. That's awesome.
Oh, and if you were going for a 'retro-modern' room, you *could* hide the wires in a moulding made of PVC pipe cut in half.
Deffinatly an original idea, i like it.
Check it out
Sorry about the quality, I haven't used dad's cam for video before (It's only a Kodak CX6200, so no audio sorry )
20000 LEds @ .20 mA = 4,000 A Your gonna need a beefy psu to run that
Unless you didn't run them all at one time. boy that would be a fun project
Your maths is a bit off 400A... Of course you can run them in series in groups of 4 or 5 (depending on LED voltage and supply voltage), so it should be around 75-100A total Still way too much for your average PSU And I don't even want to THINK about how difficult it would be to connect that many LEDs...
And to think... here I was a while back, thinking that "Project Anemone" had a lot of LEDs... guess this kinda raised the bar on quantity.
hehe.... you could just use a diode and 120v... then it would be a LOT better.
I'm not sure I wanna take the time to solder 2000 leds though And a very sensitive surge bar. Otherwise, flick the lights in the room and POOF... no more LEDs
Leadpipe? You know what you have to do know right?? WRITE US A GUIDE TO BUILD THIS BAD BOY. I wouldn't be able to figuire it out myself, I would love it if you wrote up a guide. I want to do this. Great man, just awesome.
Technology... no place for wimps!
It was really really easy to make it. You just need:
Resistors (470 if your working with 12v, like I did)
PSU (preferably one that isnt running your computer)
The way I did it was super ghetto and kind of unsafe but I haven't had any problems yet. I used an extra 150 w ATX psu and put a switch in to make it run without a computer (theres lots of guides around on how to do this). Then I pluged the sound activaction module into the molex. The sound module is suposed to run cathode case lights so it has a strange connector but I just stuck a wire in each of the terminals and hot glued them in place. After that I took some bare steel wire I had laying around and just wrapped it around push pins that are stuck in the wall. Then I took the resistors and LED's and just wraped the leads around each other and hooked them up in paralell to the wire tracks. You could solder everything or use actual shielded wire if you wanted a nicer look, but it doesnt look to tacky without it.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
BTW nice job lamcdonald.
