Figured I’d post an update on my array.I got a simple rain drop animation that I wrote on it right now. Still trying to figure out how to get the drops to fall randomly instead of waiting for each drop to finish but it’s getting there. It’s hard to tell in the video but each drop is a random blue color and sorry about all the background noise. The furnace kicked on just as I started recording.

Very nice! I always like digital simulations of natural phenomenon like this!

Hi Brian this is cool! Do you have your source on github or online? I might be able to help you with the random falling.

@Lloyd_Emelle Here is a gist of my code https://gist.github.com/Blink515/37c5ce47350511b3a6bf It is a lot different than the code shown in the video and has a flashing lightning effect. Feel free to pick it apart and help me improve it because I am sure it is not very efficient. As far as the randomness, I’m not sure if i’d want it on this small of an array anymore but would definitely want it on something larger like a 24x24 array. Maybe even different sized drops.
