The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Mooninite-inspired LED projects


Carl Cartagena sent us links to a series of LED light-art pieces he did, inspired by the Adult Swim Mooninite signs that triggered terrorist hysteria in Boston earlier this year. I wish he hadn’t splashed a URL watermark across the middle of them. Really annoying. And looking at these time-lapse vids, with a clock showing the time flying by, you realize how tedious a project with this many diodes actually is. He says the results were worth the effort, tho. He gave them away as gifts. You can see the others from the YouTube link below. Or, if you want to go to his website, his address is… crap, I can’t remember it…
