A sport coat that has hundreds of little lights sewn into it.

I once saw a local musician play the guitar and sing in a small venue. For one song, they dimmed the lights on the stage almost completely, and the sport coat he was wearing suddenly "switched on" and he had hundreds of tiny little light beads sewn into the jacket that you could not see before. They were not string lights, like for a Christmas tree. They seemed to be much more LED like, and bright, and most of all, small to the point of being invisible.  I hate to be a copy cat... but I want to make a jacket like this too. I do not care if it is portable. i.e. if I have to plug it in, that's fine. Anyone have any ideas for where I might start?

Controlling LED lights

Help, I am trying to find out if it is possible to control a string of LED lights so that when i enter a part number only certain lights will turn on. (example: If I enter 1234 into the computer, lights 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 will light up out of a string of 100).

Automated Lighting?

Hi there, I am renting a place for my new office for 3D animation and I wanted to make an automatic lighting system to turn on lights when I'm in a room and off when I move to another room. How easy/hard is it to do that? And what do I need to make my light switch on and off slowly? Cheers, Shawin.

Basic spinning stage light

I'm looking for a light that I can place on the floor that would shine onto a projector screen. Something that spins with a spiral display. Either the light itself spins. Or possibly has the ability to place a filter onto a steady light and the filter spins. I'm in a band and i'm looking for something that would be strong enough to show this light display behind the drums as we play. The light and the projector screen would be relatively close to each other.

low voltage lighting problem

SkidMark2, or anyone who can help, I have a Portfolio 120 Watt Power Pack with 6 LED lights.  I don't know their wattage, but the power pack, lights and supply cord all came as a kit, so I'm sure they don't require more power than the pack can supply.  I'm NOT getting the E1 error message.  My problem is that the lights don't come on when turned on.  The power pack is set to "O" for switching on or off manually, but the house's light switch usually has to be flipped once or twice to get them to come on.  I've got both light sensors covered, so they should be sensing darkness and allow the lights to come on.  Any idea how to fix this so that turning the switch on once turns the lights on???

Plenty of options to both make something useful and help protect the environment at the same time.Link
