If I understand this correctly, you could do any lighting pattern you want. Could you do Audi R8 style taillights? (rectangles)


i iam planning 3 red rectangles with 5mm LED (same size like the Fiero in this here ) surrounded by a rectangle of 10mm LED like in this set here .
iam calculating 1440LED aat least for this type . 5 mm LED let the rectangles appear as solid rectangle .

the idea of changing the taillightstyle by a selector will be in 3rd set i guess .

wow amazing!
this might have been asked already.
i was to interested in the photos!
how much did it cost you to make and how long did it take you??
looks like a super time consuming project!
but worth it
i want to do something like this.

sexy as all hell

one thing though.. maybe a taillight lens tint? idk somehow the idea of seeing millions of LEDS while my tails are off isnt appealing
plus i have a black notchie and would hate to ruin the clean dark look..
either way its friggin awesome

Now all you need is to have a small computer to control each LED individually.

Then you could have the LEDs spell out STOP.

Or sequence flash to the right for right turn signal, left for left signal.

Or BACK OFF

Or scroll GET OFF OF MY BUMPER DUDE

Let your imagination go...

I know it is a bit old, but I am extremely interested in where this is sourced from. This will fit right in with the style that I am going for with my car.
