Here's a piece of Transformers related artwork that I made a few years ago. If you ever watched the 80s cartoon show, you may like it.
The hardware is pretty simple - it's an array of LEDs in series, being PWM dimmed with a couple of transistors. An external 20V supply powers the whole thing.
The PWM waveforms were generated by the Axon microcontroller board. The source code and project files are here.
Back to more groovy stuff.
