I am doing a project where kids can follow a light around a map. I am using 300 ws2812b led light strips with a 5v 60amp power supply and a raspberry pi. When I attach the 300 lights to 50ft of 18 gauge led wire it works find. But I need this trail to be 31ft so I cut the strip into 10 led blocks and put a piece of wire between each block expanding it to 31ft. I can get the lights to work for a little bit then they start acting really crazy. Does any one know what I’m doing wrong? I would appreciate any helpiCloud link for a video of problemAnother video I have of the issue
I finally got some time to design my own Color Invaders project, originally inspired by Hamster's own Colour Invaders project. I ended up writing a lot of my own code for it since I have a personal thing about using somebody else's code in it's entirety, although Hamster's code obviously has a heavy influence on it's overall construction (thank you for posting it!). This game is similar to the classic Space Invaders game, or more closely related to Casio's Number Invaders on the calculator, where you have a stream of incoming invaders of a variety of colors coming down the WS2812 LED strip and you have to adjust the color of your missile to match the color of the first invader via the PmodENC (a rotary encoder). You can check out how I made the project as well as a small video showing some of it in action at http://www.instructables.com/id/Color-Invaders/.
