After receiving a tech box from Instructables with a ton of amazing goodies and the request to make something with it, I really wanted to make something great with it. The box contained some good tools, but only a few construction materials. I tried (and failed at) a few things, but I ended up making a project around one of the items in the box, an RGB led strip.
The RGB bicycle rim lights are mounted on the rims of a bicycle. Fancy electronics controlling the leds make sure only the right leds (forward facing leds white, backward facing leds red) are on at the right time, giving the illusion the leds are actually stationary. Other fancy animations are also programmed in the controller.
Special thanks to Instructables and Ford for sponsoring me with the materials and tools for making this project.
