Okay, my wife wound up not using my light string for the party, darnit. But she had good reasons, so I can’t complain — she didn’t want to have to carry around the battery pack & controller (on a small breadboard, both tucked into a drawstring pouch). Her outfit didn’t have any pockets that they would fit in, and she wanted her hands free for food and beer! Instead, she wore a store-bought necklace with C-9 style lights that had a few simple blink patterns.
I did whip up a really quick-n-dirty glitch effect. Maybe I’ll put up a quick video and code sample later.
I’m hoping to do a little more coding on it later, and maybe she’ll be willing to use it on Halloween night when we take the kids out trick-or-treating.
