Each Light would require:A RelayA DiodeA TransitorA Power supply Of some sort (To fire relay)
You create a simple Circuit where a 3.3-5V Input will trip the relay with barly any current.
Once this is done, You now have 1 wire for each light, That when pulled to 3.3-5V IT will turn on the light.
Now if you had 8 lights, You could simply hook it up to a PC parallel Port (1bit = 1 window), For more lights you could use Multiplexing Or even hack up a dot matrix controller (Hitachi make Parallel Controlled Matrix controllers For dirt cheap). As for the programming, Simple... It`s just timed events, You play an MP3, Read the position of the MP3 and set the screen to a curtain picture on that event
You could even make it parse AVI files (With the resolution of you screen).
After the first Tetris building, whose website explains the whole process of basically rigging a computer to turn lights on and off, all of these are rather tedious...
Still, interesting whether photoshopped or not.
Darn beat me 2 it! I was thinking that 2 :P
I think they just hooked up one of the light boxes to a laptop.
However, i`m not saying it wasn`t impressive.... that was freaking amazing
