Here i will tell you a litte about my first / current / last project with wiring.

I was asked to create an lighting jacket for an well known german pop band.
So we first thougt about the material of it. We decidet to use an pretty strong clear foil.
Well it was pretty hard to solder 200 superflux led's to it, but finaly we made it.  Cool
Our first thougths was about controling it with dmx ( theatre/party light protocol - based on rs485 ), but our client wanted to have it controled with an little remote control. So we only had 7 days to plan / order / build everything.

We had the choise between adurino and wiring.... the choise was pretty easy.
Cause wiring offers much more chanels without extra hardware.

Hmm, what to write now.... Undecided

I know ...

Facts:

200 Superflux-LEDs 3,4V / 20mA / 3 Lumen
1 DIY-Chaos-Wiring.... Not beauty but working  Roll Eyes
6 ULN2803A Drivers for the LEDs
1 7805 to power wiring
4 7809 to power leds
some switches,resistors, pcb's ,screws....
1 LiPo-Rechargeable battery 12V 5000mAh  ... 5C ( means can hold 25A for some time )

Software:
7 different Lightning-Programms , controled via RC


More text/pics soon.... ( not allowed to publish jet ) ...
