Blinky Tits is a Reality!
The skunk works have been churning for a while, and now it is time to announce: Blinky Tits. Our first major product developed using the WS2812B. The project is still in pre-Alpha stage, and no order are yet being taken. A number of production and reliability test are needed before it will be ready the masses. Please contact us if you would like to part of the first production run of Blinky Tits. Or you wish to commision a smilarly elegant LED wearable.
Jopel Heads in a new direction
For a long time the majority of lighting products we've sold have been from the LIA family of devices. Today the LIA family ceases development. The next area of development will make use of the Worldsemi WS2811 or WS2812 chip. These addressable full color LEDs make high detail LED systems far simplier to build, wire, and write software for. Embrace the future. Good things are coming.
Chromasporesis showing at SOAK 2013. An art installation specifically to showcase the lighting prowes of Jopel Designs.
The installation aims to create a calming, meditative environment through the use of gently fading lights mounted directly in a tree. 12 radially-oriented armatures will dangle 48 paper lantern “spores” with full color LEDs inside. Each of the spores are independently lit and controlled, but act together as a group to create dynamic, cohesive color patterns. A system of removable chains will be used to suspend the armatures and spores, eliminating permanent damage to the tree. Individual spores will have variable lengths of chain; some spores may be closer to the ground while some may be high in the branches. An open gathering space beneath the tree is manditory.
