organic armorWe received a note on our Facebook Page from Organic Armor and we wanted to share it with you.

“The piece is wired with an awesome product by Cool Neon – FunHouse Productions called Total Control Lighting.  This is made of LEDs with an arduino controller. Ping pong balls diffuse the light. We are planning a small swarm of firefly costumes for next summer with the fabulous Whee Ahh Faerie Kin. You can see the firefly costume Paul made for the {Re}HAPPENING event last spring in this little video clip:”

Over here at Cool Neon we love the gorgeous firefly costume and look forward to seeing more of them this summer.  Thanks so much for posting this on our Facebook Page.

planatary dreams  3-10-07 at 10.39.53 AMOur customer Paul of Sable Studios sent us a prototype of his 3D half dome “Planetary Dreams”.  This is 100 bullet pixels in a hemisphere, it could be made as a wall piece, floor mounted or hung as a mobile or the Ultimate Disco Ball!  A full Sphere it would contain 200 pixels.

He uses square  pixels in some other designs.  He uses Sintra as a substrate, he designed the armatures, had them fabricated using a CNC overhead router and they are run by gateway controllers.

They are scalable, and he can adapt them to your needs.

If you are interested in contacting Paul:

Lightwalker makes the front page of the local newspaper.

He used 350 pixels … 75 on each leg and 100 on each arm, a mix of bullets and squares.  The squares are on his pants and are 2 strands of 25 that he split and added connectors. He has a great tutorial you should check out.

We think that is very exciting, good job, Casey!
