Remote control lights/led very cheap? Answered

Hello everyone, I want to control different lights and make them perform different things by using wireless and I want to do it as cheap as possible.  The inspiration came from this company PIXMOB with their bracelets.

https://vimeo.com/93264538               to see how the bracelets connects and changes color as well.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PixMob         some description on how the technology works

Thanks for all your help and I am sure it will help may of us to tinker more into different things.

I would use some lazer or directional IR-Led's then have them trigger a certain colour change on the bracelet Via a IR reciver in each bracelet.

If you make an aray of them with different addresses you could also create the swirl effect you see in the Vid. Maybe hook it up to MadMapper to make the programming relatively painless :)
