Lets cover a car in LEDs & GSPF 2016

A friend asked me a while back…

“what would it take to cover an entire car in these LED pixels?”

He even went so far as to give me a die cast model of a Ford Mustang GT to play with


So I did

Now this is just a prototype for a large scale version. Covering a life sized car with LED pixels would be an epic effort I would love to undertake, but it would require some hefty funding. Not to mention someone donating a car to me… The car above used WS2812b pixels. I had a bunch of them lying around from another prototype that I had dismantled. No sense in binning these pixels if they can be reused.

The Gertrude Street Projection Festival is happening again!!! This year, I have decided to enter. Not with a car covered in LEDs, however. But with the new WOW Suit! Id love to put it on a mannequin and have it displayed inside a shop window. I have some ideas for new animation sequences that would cater well for a shop front

The GSPF Robot Party was awesome

We had a blast at the Gertrude Street Projection Festival Robot party last night. Thanks a bunch to everyone who came and all the people who made an effort with costumes. The Wow Suit did very well, no glitches, worked for 4 hours solid and the batteries did not die! Was very hot and sweaty however…

Here are 2 pics from the GSPF Photogs, great thanks to Nicky Pastore (more coming soon I’m Told):
