This is a great project because it is a complete solution to run your own animations on Illuminatrix during Burining Man 2010. Project itself is pretty complex one that consists of 16 distinct PCBs built around PIC16F1827 on each that control 3 LED drivers for every color of RGB LEDs.
All these slave boards are controlled by master board run by PIC18F26J50 microcontroller that sends data via I2C interface. Animations are stored in SD card so animations are run one by one, or user can enter animation ID with PS/2 keyboard and view own animation. Well this is great stuff for shows.
