DMX controlled bookcase





Andrea tipped me on this bookcase (they look like billies) modified to have 96 channels of DMX controlling many tiny red, green, blue LEDs. Click to play the video. Impressive effect.

Update!
After posting this, Timothy, the creator of this LED bookcase contacted me with details of his hack. Click here for a downloadable pdf to make your own DMX controlled LED bookcase. Also see his other LED creations on youtube.

    DMX? I was expecting rap…I can see the seizures this would induce on unsuspecting guests.

    I’m glad my bookcase doesn’t do that or I’d never get any work done.

    If I don’t misinterpret what I found on youtube, the song is called “Christmas Eve Sarajevo 12/24″ performed by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

    Awesome!

  8. In the PDF, the maker describes that the cases came with backs that he didn’t use — however the backs are milky-opaque plastic (the stuff that’s used as diffuser for his lights, to be exact), rather than hardboard, so it’s not a Billy after all. However, this could be done with a Billy as well, obviously.
