Mechanical Rock Sign

Completed sign

I built this sign for Mechanical Rock - a local software company's new office in Perth. It's similar in construction to the iCetana sign I made the year before, except I made this sign's frame with 2mm steel sheet rather than angle, and I blackened the steel using JAX and clear coated it. The RGB LED strips is also controlled by a raspberry pi, however I built a web interface and API to control the lighting modes. I also added a small USB microphone and wrote some basic signal processing code so it would animate to music:
