Where do I find color changing LED tubes? Answered

Hi all,

I'm after a modular/customisable LED tube/other interesting window display lighting options. This is mainly for window display/events. See image below.

I would say those are probably solid or thick hollow acrylic plastic rods cut to length with a light source embedded at the end. The surface of the tube may be diffused to spread the light, be faceted, have particles throughout or may just be cloudy in composition. The most efficient way to light them up is with bright LEDs. You can use Christmas tree light strands or for better effect RGB or addressable neopixels controlled by something like an arduino. Depending on the length of the tubes, you may want to light them up with an entire strip of LEDs but then you need to consider the power needed to drive them. Good luck.
