Simon Dargaville shared with us about an incredible festival in Melbourne, Australia featuring light paintings using our NeoPixel 144 pixel strips!
We had a ‘White Night’ event in Melbourne, Australia last night, we ran a light painting experience, just a dslr tethered to laptop and 46″ lcd for playback. I made 2x Light Painting sticks, for public to try out their skills.
BMPs were mostly just color gradients.. (and some logos) but people had heaps of fun giving it a go..
600 odd photos taken over the night. Some better than others. but not bad for people giving it their first go, and only having 6 seconds to make ‘art’ 🙂
Thanks again for selling the 144 pixel strands in stock and shipping so quick! Couldn’t have done it without you!
And from the festival description White Night Melbourne.
…In its 2013 debut, White Night Melbourne attracted more than 300,000 people. Commencing at 7pm on Saturday 22 February 2014, Melbourne’s city streets, laneways, landmarks and cultural institutions will once again be transformed into a cultural playground from dusk-till-dawn.
With an expanded event landscape, White Night Melbourne 2014 will offer a mix of free and ticketed entertainment for families to urbanites and everyone in-between. Over 12 hours, in venues and major cultural institutions right across the city centre, visitors can participate in an urban adventure of exhibitions, street performances, fashion, lighting installations, film screenings, multimedia projections, concerts, dance and interactive events….
Featured Adafruit Product!
Adafruit NeoPixel Digital RGB LED Strip 144 LED – 1m Black: We crammed ALL THE NEOPIXELS into this strip! An unbelievable 144 individually-controllable LED pixels on a flexible PCB. It’s completely out of control and ready for you to blink. This strip has a black mask, and an extra heavy flex PCB. These LED strips are even more fun and glowy. There are 144 RGB LEDs per meter, and you can control each LED individually! Yes, that’s right, this is the digitally-addressable type of LED strip. You can set the color of each LED’s red, green and blue component with 8-bit PWM precision (so 24-bit color per pixel). The LEDs are controlled by shift-registers that are chained up and down the strip so you can shorten or lengthen the strip. Only 1 digital out pin is required to send data. The PWM is built into each LED-chip so once you set the color you can stop talking to the strip and it will continue to PWM all the LEDs for you. (read more)
