Two Modules Acting as One

I recompiled the stock animation software(not the in-development stuff) to work with the USB hub and now half the floor works in sync! We're finishing module three monday night and module four by wednesday night. Stay tuned!

The real question is can it play Conway's LIFE?

are you planning on sharing the circuits and software code?

just a question you know, i dont study electronics, but architecture, so figuring out how to do these fun things on my own is a bit hard

well, thanks for showing

Conway's game of life gets boring pretty fast. You should check out some of Rudy Rucker's software (CELLAB and CAPOW) and the rules they run. Life tends to just sit there and oscillate with maybe some gliders, but the rules in Rucker's software produce some really good patterns. I think that in contrast to life, they would actually be quite suitable for a dancefloor.

Pehr that dance floor is absolutely beautiful i wish our EE's did something like that all they do is sit around with their ham radios. Make sure you get it on film when its done

Where did you purchase the Lexan covering and how much did it cost for 4 sections of it? What was the overall cost of the entire project? (estimate). Does the IEEE have plans to sell this dancefloor? It is better than any commercial LED floor I've ever seen! Very impressive!

All of the code for the floor is open source. You can get the code that the WashU kids are using from the MIT group that wrote it. Just google "1E disco dance". (You can buy the boards from them, too.)
