Here’s what he had to say:
I run a group called Signal-to-Noise Media Labs here in Denver and I just finished my first large-scale piece for Denver International Airport. It’s an 8×8 grid (per side) of your 60 LED neopixel rings in translucent enclosures driven by 16 Fadecandy, 16 power supplies, 2 Linux boxes and is reactive through the Asus Xtion.
We’ll be posting the entire build, process, documentation, and code soon but we weren’t aloud to talk about it until it’s release. It’s completely open source and we’ll be using it as a teaching tool for newcomers to our group. Anyone can develop for it!…
It still has a few little glitches that we need to iron out (like some intermittent flickering), but it’s up running, and looking pretty cool. It’s going to be the first of (hopefully) a bunch of ongoing permanent interactive installs we’ll be doing with them and a few other Denver locations.
Thanks again for all the awesome stuff you make!
