    Can you please provide a link from where you bought the "Lighting white" acrylic with that percentage transmissive. And I believe this is the top layer with which bezels(triangles have been made). ??

    I just used white acrylic paint, found at an arts/crafts supply store. Worked great!

    Hi Can you tell me where to buy titanium dioxide, I think thats a very important component in this project, as the regular led wont diffuse and you will still have hot spots.

    This is awesome. I'd like to make something similar, perhaps with a different shape or size. Can you give me an idea for your overall dimensions of the triangle?

    Also, I've been looking a neopixels and have had trouble finding the strip you used. Did you buy a weatherproof strip and remove the coating?

    Thanks for this! I hope to make one and then use it for projects to help me learn to program.

    Beautiful piece. I'm very impressed with the quality of your work.

    I wish I had the laser-cutter resources to use your techniques to build my own version. I do have a laser-cutter available, but I can't afford to join the TechShop in San Francisco. I'll have to find other techniques. Maybe I can user foam-core, but foam-core is not durable, unfortunately.

    Brilliant! Illuminating! (no puns intended) :)

    Here's an idea to to extend this. If each triangle were touch-sensitive, wouldn't it be interesting to use it as a sort of futuristic-looking door lock (access keypad). You could program it to unlock a door, only after a specific geometric pattern had been entered.

    Yeah! I've wanted to make it interactive with a capacitive proximity sensor circuit using the bolts as sensing antennas :)

    This is incredible impressive! Things like this make me wish I'd have a laser cutter.

    In the video it ssems like all patterns are generated on a computer, what program did you use for that and how were you able to send all that data to the LEDs?

    I used the Fadecandy LED controller, an open source hardware project I started last fall. The Fadecandy boards are available from Adafruit now: https://www.adafruit.com/products/1689
