Well, after seeing the many houses dancing to Trans-Siberian Music, I decided it was time to do the same to my house. The problem is that I currently live in Hong Kong and in a 52 story building. Instead I wired up my living. At first the project was going to simply be mood lighting, but then I added DMX to my controller and Vixen Lights and this is what I got. The projects uses 96 SMD RGB LEDs (how is the for acronyms?). There are six TI TLC5940 16 ch controller chips on a custom board I made myself. There is a Parallax Propeller controlling the whole thing. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
