Color Addressed Dithering Anyone?

Recommended Posts

Greetings fellow netizens of the hiveMind...

I want to make a print that dazzles in response to color cycling of an LED strip.

I'm thinking this must already exist, I'm just unaware of it, so if you know of it please point me to a web page. I've got an Adafruit neopixel strip, 8 LEDs long, that can create RGB light (that's R, G, and B light in narrow spectrums each if it matters). I also have Red, Green, and Aqua filaments in translucent PETG. Not blue, just aqua but close enough I hope. Also some processors to drive the LEDs including some ESP8266 chips on HUZZAH boards for making web interfaces.

Anyway, long story short I'd like to make cool Christmas gifts by using the different colors of the LEDs to illuminate a dithered or otherwise color-mixed image so that a hypnotic effect or a motion effect or both is achieved. it could be sort of like a lithophane made of colored panels or somesuch... not really sure where to take this idea yet.

Does anyone have familiarity with these concepts?

Les

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
