Homemade modular light up dance floor!

Dancefloorvideo-712039Brian writes “Although we all know that DMX was totally cool in 1999, his light up dance-floor in the music video Whats My Name was out of this world. The circular dance-floor was comprised of concentric rings that lit up in a chasing pattern. Although the solution was a drastic improvement on the classic Saturday Night Fever dance-floor, it still had room for improvement. To Improve on the DMX floor, and to make it transportable and reconfigurable, it needed to be modular.” Yes folks, the age of DIY home discos…is here. Link.

    if you follow to the link to their site, there are videos of it. and it doubles as a huge huge 30fps display. not a huge amount of pixels, but definitely enough for multi-colored dance patterns. the thing is f-ing rgb! and now they sell their homemade control boards and distribute the accompanying software under cc license! i couldn’t believe it when i saw it.

    now does THAT sound like an ad or what? if only i could have one…
