Hi All,

Looks like this library has come a long way from the last time I checked (back when it was FastSPI_LED). I'm looking forward to getting my teeth into it.

I'm currently working on the next version of the Mitochondrion - a glow staff that's a little excessive. The Mark 4 ran two strips of LPD8806 LEDs from an Arduino Nano and didn't look too bad (Mitochondrion M4.2.2 at Circulation Festival); the Mark 5 should run four strips of two hundred Neopixels from a Teensy 3.1 for about ten times the power output. I've been learning about Teensy's and Neopixels with a quick side project - the Too Bright Hat (180 LED Hat).

The Mitochondrion Mark 5 is currently at advanced design stage, with various test boards cluttering the desk, 3D printed structural bits on their way to me from Shapeways, and some more Li-Ion batteries in the post after I buggered the first test set.

Code is a minimal multi-tasking framework (based on http://bleaklow.com/2010/07/20/a_very_simple_arduino_task_manager.html) to allow multiple pattern generators and multiple sensors. I should have a good think about how to integrate that with FastLED, mostly I've been re-writing other libraries to play nicely with i2c_t3 instead of Wire (https://bitbucket.org/JezWeston).

Anyway, my progress is at http://happyinmotion.com/?tag=mitochondrion. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to FastLED and I look forward to getting my hands dirty with it.

There's nothing like bumping into someone you haven't seen for ages to remind you that you haven't posted any house pics for a while. Here's where we are at as of yesterday, outside looking done, bottle wall getting towards the ceiling, blinds underway, some parts of the house done, but still plenty to go.

Ah, Mercedes quality! This is a high quality handle, sadly it's no longer attached to the door.

Anybody want to buy a van? I have specially lightened it to increase fuel economy and cargo capacity.

+Rich d'Rich That is an awesome idea. I can advertise it as a turbo-charged two-seater to confuse people as standard Mercs only use superchargers on their factory two-seaters. Maybe if I write AMG on the side in spray-paint then it will be worth even more?

+Joel Pitt Hence the large aluminium heatshield. But yup, the amp needs one as well, that's (one of) tomorrow's jobs.

0.5mm is still on my not-quite-good-enough list of things to do, but I must get there some day for the shiny parts it unlocks.
