  1. Halloween light display

    Every year my kids school does something called Trunk or Treat, the parents decorate the back of the car or SUV with Halloween decorations. Keeping with the theme of synced light shows (like I did for Xmas 2016) I decided that I would put together a little show for Trunk or Treat this year....around about 500 pixels one singing face (370 pixels) and 2 bat props (25 pixels each) and a few pixels in the back of the car. I didn't want to run the car for 4 hours straight and run everything on an adapter. Luckily just about everything runs off of 12Vdc, so i went battery shopping and this is what I ended up with as my main power. Pictured below is a 12V 65Ah battery which should provide ample power for this rather small show and a F16v2 pixel controller (a little overkill for this tiny show.) I ended up needing a second battery with a 12v to 5v car adapter to run a raspberry pi on top of a speaker to run the playlist. The Props Included 4ft x 4ft singing face an outline of the SUV "trunk" and 2 bats that I cut out of acrylic drilled holes in and spray painted. As well as pumpkins placed in the back. Below is a picture of the final setup in the back of the car. All props are wired into this controller also wired into the controller for 12v power only is a spare linksys router. I needed the router instead of a switch because I wanted to use an iPad to manage the show from the raspberry pi web interface. The software that I used to manage the show is called Falcon FPP and more info can be found here http://falconchristmas.com/forum/index.php/board,8.0.html. I didn't take any video during the school event but I did set this back up for Trick or Treat at our villa. It ended up being quite long run time Kids and parents alike seemed to get a kick out of the final product.
  2. Schools are finally accepting BTC as payment for tuition

    I would definitely pay for my kids tuition with BTC. I just hope the US tax system catches up with cryptocurrency. Would mazing if they would allow you to save and grow like a 529 plan with BTC. It would be easy to register wallet address that would that you want to get all the tax benefit......but I doubt it will happen.
  3. Getcoinfree.com- Scam???

    Hard to tell with this one, this is the first I have heard of it. but at first glance it looks kind of sloppy, only one game and the unlimited faucet is offline. The auto-miner is an interesting concept I probably would use it...if I wanted to mine with my PC I would use Nice Hash
