My first experiment in speeding up the LEDs is to use something called OctoWS2811 which is designed to let you drive 8 strips of LEDs in parallel. Theoretically, this would allow me to boost the speed of my antenna from the dismal 9 frames per second to a much more attractive 72 frames per second.Continue reading “The OctoWS2811”
One of last years’ projects was a 46′ tall antenna “wayfinder” that we used to find our camp from miles away. It was awesome, but next year I want it to be even awesomer.
This blog is about programmable LEDs, and making them fast and colorful and cool.
