ThingM Project Feature: Burning Man Bike

BlinkM Burning Man Bike     Creator: Chris Ellerby

For this amazing Burning Man bike project I took a Worksman trike and
lined the frame with RGB LED light bars and wired them all to a single
controller. The light bars can be easily set to display a single color, flashing
color sequence, or slow fading color sequence, all from a single
button. The bike is also wired with a stereo sound system, a 12v 18am
hour SLA battery, and even has space left in the rear basket for a small
cooler. To push this project over the top, the BlinkM MaxM made its
glorious return. I took a small plastic skull and mounted the MaxM inside
with a 9v battery and a toggle switch. The MaxM was programmed with a
random sequence of colors, and the whole thing was attached to the front
of the bike. As you can see from the following video, it really completes
the project. That said, I have one more MaxM that I simply must put
elsewhere on the bike, Im just looking for the perfect spot!
