Got a Big House? How about a GIANT DIY Strobe Array?

The Strobe Array

Check out this all-graciously extravagant DIY GIANT strobe array that will fill your nights with hours of dancing and fun (with chics).

The Strobe Array needs 2 DMX channels to be controlled: one to select the pattern (a value of 0 is a null pattern) and another channel to set the speed at which the pattern is to be displayed. Unfortunatly, it was getting quite complex to control the exact strobing effect of each strobe. To keep things simple, I simply soldered a small 12V relay inside each strobe which shorts the potentiometer which control the rate of flashing. So by carefully adjusting the potentiometer, you can set the circuit to charge up without triggering the flash, and when the relay is closed, it starts flashing immmediatly. The short circuit on the potentiometer simulate a fully-turned potentiometer and the strobe flashes at its maximum rate.

Seems like something anyone can do provided you know a bit about circuits. This DIY is definitely going on my priority list of to-do-in-the-future list.
