The Electric Giraffe Project
24th May, 2014 by

After months of preparations and changes/mods/additions to the Electric Giraffe, we’re here at Maker Fair! Russell himself has flown out from the UK and we had a great time rebuilding all new LED driven spots for the Giraffe! I would like to thank Phillip Burgess for his support/advice in setting up the Neopixel LED network. I would also like to thank Maker Place in San Diego for their complimentary laser cutting work on the giraffe’s hexagon spots. We’re going to look better than ever in the dark room as a result!  Here is mister raffe himself in my driveway, on his first new LED spot test.   The colors and sheer brightness were beyond what we expected, and we cannot wait to show him off at the faire!
