Tech, Love, & Leds

Created on 20 Nov 2016

A two part project consisting of a web based controller and led based lighting fixture for trusses.

The project consists of 2 parts: an innovative lighting fixture for theater and show settings involving truss, and an HTML5 integrated controller for sending DMX commands. The lighting was inspired by custom lights used in professional shows such as the School of Rock on broadway.
