Default A project that went down last night (LED'*)

So this project has been going on for a while, but over easter I made the frame and bought it back to school and it finally got assembled and such last night.

In my appartment:
Frosted the glass
Sanded all the wood
build the mother trucker

That is incredibly awesome and unique. Kind of ashamed I never thought of anything like that for my apartment.

Good work. Try connecting the different colors to individual switches. You could connect to let them turn on individually or change intensity at intervals or continuously, which would be pretty cool looking.

Control is in the works. There are TONS of different routes that could be taken. there is no definate as to which one will be taken at this time.

Could be anything from and LED controller to serial port controlled (yes like your computer serial port). Time will tell.

Serial port control with music interface! How did you frost the glass in you apartment? A sandblaster would make an awful mess.
