    Default Net lights Pixel

    I currently have 5 small to medium size bushes in my front yard that I cover with 5 4ftx6ft Incandencent Net lights. Each “net” has about 150 lights on it.

    I am thinking about converting these over to pixel lights. I am having trouble finding a similar item that is similar in size, but pixel lights instead of LED or incandescents.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Either have them custom made , or custom build some on your own .

    I have considered net lights many times and always conclude that incans are impossible to replicate exactly < but maybe one can come close.
    Strip pixels could possibly be a reasonable facsimile but would require an enormous amount of time and effort to custom build and weatherize .

    I am not as worried about replicating the look of the light itself, more replicating the “string”, and the “ease”, “uniformity” and “look” on the bushes.

    After some more looking around on Ray Wu website, I think I may have found some that may work.

    My display currently has no pixels, so now to decide “do I jump in?”

    I ordered the mesh to use as a membrane for another project I am working on .
    Pixels tear holes when pressed through it .
    The only mesh I have found rigid enough to support pixels and flexible but not enough for netting is the plastic coated wire garden mesh .
    Unfortunately , I believe that the pixels wiring itself needs to construct the mesh . nothing tops the original mesh design of incans .
    All commercial grade designs of led mesh failed miserably . Noma led mesh was one of the worst failing even before you get it out of the box

    Hard to beat the ease and price of m5 light nets.

    I have almost phased out all my incandescent lighting, and am down to a single 8 channel relay using only six channels. Mostly for mesh lights on the bushes.
