UPDATE: This kit is discontinued please see the new version, 8 Channel LED Controller v.3, the development files are still available to build this version.

As simple a circuit as can be. A 12F675 controls a high-power shift register, which in turn controls up to 48 LEDs at 20ma per, (~120mA per channel) in 8 channels(groups),

Software controlled patterns create seamless effects from group to group. With 4-state greyscale ( 4 states of LED of brightness ) a vast amount of patterns/effects are possible.

It was designed to go along with my 8"x8" 32 LED Infinity Mirrors.

A single momentary-pushbutton cycles through the programmed patterns. Comes loaded with 5 patterns, and the ability to add more through re-writing the firmware.

Isn't it against some rule to charge for a part of the Instructable?

You don't have to buy anything to recreate this, the schematic and HEX file are in the ZIP on step 1. If someone wants the Eagle Files or the Source code, they can be purchased.

Oh My God! My wife and I were just talking about looking for one of these mirrors a couple of days ago. I had the image of these burned in my brain from childhood for some reason. I saw one as a child and have been amazed by them ever since. I know that is weird but hey, everyone has that childhood memory of something that amazed them as a child. Thanks for posting this and all your projects are great! Now I can make an awesome Coffee Table.
