The bulk of this instructable is about creating the concrete base. There isn't much on the electronics - as there is so much already out there about using micros and LEDs.
Step 1: Making the mould
- be heavy,
- have adjustable feet,
- have recessed panels for the controls and power,
- have integrated tubes that will accept the aluminium loops for the fabric form.
Tubes for the aluminium supports were held in place with short lengths of the aluminium rod (also keeps the concrete out). Nuts for the front panels and LED plate were also cast into the concrete.
