Flashy Light Tube in Lakeside

Recommended Posts

I had some very kind words about my RGB flashy light tube on the lakeside desk and few of you wanted to know how it worked so i thought i would together a parts list https://imgur.com/a/iZdnlXP

 

https://coolcomponents.co.uk/products/lumazoid

So this is the circuit board that powers it all. 

 

the tube comes from

http://clearplastictube.co.uk/opal-acrylic-tube

 

(The tube must be Opal, as this has a right detraction and low light pass through so you cant see the individual diodes.) This the cheapest ive found, but look about

 

 

If your willing to wait a little while you can grab LED for really cheap, otherwise Amazon is fine, All you need is a set of WS2812b leds.

All thats left is a power supply

you can go usb, along the draw isnt too high or a wall version

All you gotta do is thread the leds through the tube, wire the leds in, soldering helps, or solder on a flappy extension for easy removal

cut one end off, solder on and then you have a solid quick release

 

find yourself some 40mm pipe clips and then attach how ever you wish, my plan is once my 3d printer arrive to print out some multi functional brackets for it. 

 

Any question feel free to respond

100% making one of these! Tyvm for the parts list

Light-o-rama is a different approach to this kind of visualisation too.   however it might need manually scheduling.

I got my LED strip yesterday and managed to whip up an Arduino circuit to mimic the Lumazoid and it seems to work :D

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
