Trilix Art Installation with Python, FadeCandy, NeoPixels and #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Thanks to Ryan for sending in this awesome project!

It’s name is Trilix (“Try – Lix” like triple helix), and the structure is three steel spiral bent rods affixed to two wood panels that are stained and poly’d. Attaching the two wood panels is another stained and poly’d wooden dowel in the center. It is placed on a stool to make it more at eye level and allows the electronics to be hidden underneath.

Trilix uses a Raspi to control Neopixel strips via Fadecandy controller.
Python script is used on the Pi to make the system not need a computer and the script will autostart on startup. Uses python library to work with TouchOSC to allow for a headless wireless-n communication (which can work from about 400 ft away with a clear shot to the Pi from the remote).
