Door Logo

PROJECT:

Logo Sign for Door

SOLUTION:

I propose we make a total control Lighting implementation for a sign and possible outdoor building coolness.

Mount pixels to some circular cut plywood, with a large dense cluster of pixels. Say a 2-3 foot diameter wood/metal round with 200-300 pixels. These are RGB LED Roll lights with modular controller so you can define each LED light, 3 LED per “pixel” . 60 pixel per meter. This project has everything arduino, design of the cluster of strip lights, and software programming of LED pixels. All good shit from coolneon.com in Oakland.

POWER:

Id like to make it Power over Ethernet.

RESULT:

To make DMS logo that can osscillate through a gajillion different colors. That can change periodically, and maybe we can do more house lights, physics is involved.

PRODUCTS:

  • Lights $100

  • Developer Kit $57.50 has enclosure, arduino board and shield to interface to the lights.

SUGGESTIONS/COMMENTS

It might be cool to do a backlit logo, where we have the logo cut out in steel/wood/unobtainium, ~3’ in diameter, eg:

and the lights mounted behind, and have the thing offset from the surface ~1“.
