drone courtshipAtelier D. Schlaepfer and Flyability made a two minute movie, featuring the magical encounter between two flying robots, or drone courtship. They used the world’s first drones capable of interacting with their environment and developed lighting and choreography to deliver a unique piece at the intersection of high-technology and art.
They used Cool Neon Hella Phat 5.0mm Wire. We loved this video and hope you will too, it is graceful and adept all at the same time.

To view the video on their website please click HERE.  We loved the backstage photos, you can see those HERE.
Thanks so much for sending us the video, we love sharing your work.

Illuminated Boots!

Illuminated BootsWe are so happy Matt sent us this video of his fabulous boots that he created using Cool Neon’s Total Control Lighting.

Matt used TCL lights and our TCL “Gate-way” 512 Controller (TCLCG512) to create his illuminated boots. And he sent us some tips we want to share with you:

  • I’m using the four D batteries case with a extra long Y shaped cord you guys made me to go down the back of my legs.
  • I used Velcro + super glue to attach the velcro to the boots and lights so I can take them off if need be. I used the super glue because the heat from the Playa started to melt the sticky backing of the Velcro and would start to come off during the day. So the glue keeps it from coming off.
  • I wrapped the wires in-between the pixels with black electrical tape for two reasons.
    1. To help fortify the wires and make them more sturdy and not bend as much.
    2. To make them black and less visible.
    I’ve had them on the Playa 2 or 3 times so far and I have only had to replace them once.

So Matt, thanks for sending us this fun video and maybe we will cross paths on the Playa.

Cool Neon CAT-09

Yes, this has been to the Playa

Have you ever wondered how our products might do after the Playa? Are they still working?
Well guess what, the answer is YES!

Cool Neon’s CAT-09 vs the Playa!

Cool Neon's CAT-09

This is what it looked like before it was opened

We got a note from our client Chris the other day, and he sent us photos of the CAT-09 driver  he had removed from a project, after returning from the Playa… and it was still working!  

We are so pleased with this outcome! Thanks for letting us know Chris.

Keep those stories and photos coming people, we love them.
