Hey, I just wanted to share this Arduino based light control system.

I use the Arduino R3, Ethernet Shield, 7 OSEPP I2C expansion shields to control 300 BlinkM smart LED's.

I work for a company that produces photo books and they wanted a way to indicate where to place photo books that go together for an order in a cubbyhole. Lighting up the cubbyhole makes it easy and fast for the person working as they don't have to read anything and then figure out where to put the book. They just watch the lights.

As you can see there are a lot of cubbyholes, 300 cubbyholes in all, and I installed a light at each one.

The operator scans the barcode on the photo book which sends a request a light commander (Grails server)  and that looks up the correct consolidation area then dispatches a request to the appropriate Arduino which in turn activates the appropriate light.

This prototype consolidation area has 300 lights. The next build will have 600 lights!

So, this is an example of Arduino being use in a commercial production environment and it's holding out pretty well.
