The crazy modders at GruntvillE are playing with the cool looking MADLights
Digitally Controlled LED's. Very nice man, if you're into that type of thing
Quite a few additions have been made so that customers can add more features
in the future without having to purchase a whole new system. After a brief discussion
with Robert, it seems they also built in a fourth color channel and the ability
to change the programming by swapping out the programming chip. You can really
tell MADLights has its focus set squarely on the customer. The PCB seems to
have room for a few potentiometers and a spare resistor or two which are probably
there for the fourth color channel. Another nice touch that you can just make
out in the pictures is the hook and loop fasteners that are provided to mount
the units anywhere you may wish.
The four smaller PCBs included are what we will be referring to as LED PODs.
These hold the Red, Green, and Blue LEDs that allow the kit to display
over one million color combinations! There are two types of LED PODs; two are
double ended and two are single ended. Obviously, the single ended PODs are
designed to be at the ends of the two cable runs.
