Las Vegas Lights!


Recommended Posts

We're doing "Tuna in Vegas" in a couple of months. Director wants some 'typical' Vegas (perhaps more related to the street) "Arrow" signs with chasing lights.

At this time, I'm thinking of making thin wooden arrows about 2' long 6" wide and then mounting LED's around the edges. I'll group and wire several adjacent LEDs and bring them out to a 12v relay box which I'll drive from a Arduino. The final step would be to control the Arduino to provide the various 'chases' from a DMX decoder. Hmm! lots of work so posting here to see if anyone has done this or similar or has a more efficient way of handling things. Bottom line; Although I want simple commands from the Console I want these things to be pretty much self standing.

Arrow LED tape :-)




Alternatively correx and pixels or cabuchons






Nice selection - thank you. I ordered a reel today. I'm Arduino'd already and have a couple of 12 volt relay boxes from a previous show (which flashed regular LED tape). So should have some proto's next week.
