LED Umbrella

Classmates Dom Cheng, Terrick Gutierrez attached an LED array to an umbrella because… why not?!

How does it work? The umbrella is connected to a program called MadMapper that allows us to project whatever we want onto the array from a computer.

The small green box in the bottom corner of the above picture connects the umbrella LEDs to the computer. It is a nifty piece of hardware called LeDMX that does a lot of the heavy data translation automatically.

Measured out strips of LEDs to attach to the frame:

Wired it up:

Then connected it to a power supply and the LeDMX!
