    Interesting...using the SPI port. I'm surprised that it can generate the timing in the hardware for this, Jer was thinking it wouldn't work but...hey if it does thats great.

    I'll see if I can get some time this week to build FPP from the repository and modify a PixelPi board to drive the pixel string.

    I can see it now. There will be PI's everywhere in my yard!!!!
    Now if I could just figure out Wireless power for the whole yard

    maybe if I wound up some wire on a PVC pipe and suspended it next to a 13KV transmission line

    on second thought I'll see if there is a sale on extension cords.

    Wireless like set the microwave on high and open the door and use all those old dish network "antenna" to translate the microwaves back into nice steady 12v. ;-)
