LED Light-art experiment #1

    After seeing the latest TRON movie, and then learning that the illuminated suits that the characters wore were real and not CG'd, I got curious. I was able to find Glowhut.com - a place where you can buy various illuminated wires, tapes and panels.
    I bought a couple of wires from them that included a voltage regulator and power adapter. The wires are actually quite flexible and easy to work with.
    I am planning to possibly utilize the LED tape in different colors on the West wall of the arcade to illuminate the vertical slat decor that's already there. Then the plan will be to paint / apply geometric designs between the slats that will glow under black light. The goal is to give the wall a 1980s TRON-ish feel.
