NYC Resistor’s DomeStar project looks like a great display to show off at events! (It’s already appeared at the Open Hardware Summit, Burning Man, and Maker Faire, among others) It’s a sixteen-foot dome covered in LED strips, with every one of the 6,400 LEDs individually addressable. See the project page for cool information about the custom boards and animation software the group developed to make this happen.
