Yesterday I received my sample string from mrpackethead in New Zealand. The factory made us two test strings of 50 nodes each. Hooray for DHL and 2 day (!) around-the-world service. Hooray also for Chinese New Year being over. It seems like most of the country is shut down for 2 weeks in February.
Spent a few hours figuring out the protocol (this new 8 bit controller speaks a somewhat different language than last year’s 5-bit system). Once I could drive the nodes discretely and successfully, I wrote some quick microcontroller code for a DMX bridge.
Here they are, lounging happily in a bowl of tap water. All we need is a fish.
