Color Kinetics LED Panel


Recently I realized the summer is almost over. The prefrosh are coming into campus soon. I need to prepare cool things to show them. They won't be impressed by MOSFET oscillators or BLDC motors... They need sounds, lights, and color. So I am resolved to solve the problem of the currently not working LED panels on hall. A previous resident set up a bunch of Color Kinetics  boards in a waterproof, wooden box. http://www.colorkinetics.com/ is currently owned by Phillips, the electronics giant.

My current state with the project is sending noise over LAN cable to the LED controller. The board is 13 sections by 5 sections. At max capacity it draws a few kilowatts.

More info to likely come in the form of a project report. Bringing these LED's back from the dead will likely take more than a day.
