Back to work, the time I can spend on the liightbrush is now seriously limited. Nonetheless, the v2 is on the way, with almost 7 times more LEDs (as shown below) and wireless connection to the PC through bluetooth. I am still looking around for proper material to scatter the light. Most parts should be in late this week, and I am targeting to get the work done by the end of next week.

Music at the crossing

A request for an animal crossing character came in, which I couldn’t refuse. This picture teaches something valuable: a black background on a picture isn’t always as black as I would want it to be. I need to ensure that it is true black in order for it to be completely transparent, otherwise there might be some lost pixels, basically black to the eye but that get translated to colored LEDs nonetheless, as seen with the blue dots below.

As a bonus (lucky you), here is a mix of yesterday’s two pictures.
