Zoot Suit Uses Total Control LightingWe just got this note from Frisco about his fabulous Zoot Suit, and we wanted to share it with you:

Hey Cool Neon:
I was just in your store and you asked me to send some pics of a project I made a few years ago, a zoot suit using Total Control Lighting. Thanks, and have a great Burn!
-Frisco
“Rico Suave”

If you want to contact Frisco, you can reach him here: ricosuavezoot@gmail.com

Frisco used the Total Control Lighting square-based pixels in his zoot suit with an Arduino controller and a remote control pad that he programmed himself (in the days before we offered the TCL Mini Controller).

Zoot Suit Uses Total Control LightingWe love hearing from all of you about your projects. Please send pics or videos to: info@coolneon.com
