@Caleb: The 32. She made them right before the more densely populated strips and I made a joke about it being bad timing. She pointed out that the tighter strip wouldn't have handled the bend she needed as well, so it was a non-issue.
It looks like they have a new version using the 60-LED strips -- check out this page:

I designed a lighting effect for a boutique once that used a variation of the "infininty Mirror" idea. The boutique occupied a very narrow spot in a strip mall. I put several round mirrors on the walls carefully aligned with matching mirrors on the opposing wall. Each mirror had a ring of LEDs around it. You could stand between the two mirrors and see yourself in a "tunnel" to infinity. We later added a slight angle to one mirror of each pair to make the tunnel curve. Skewing the pattern fed to the two rings of LED's by one or two LEDs caused a nice spiral effect.
Hi Max: I think these led strips on a reel are amazing.
Whilst not as flamboyant as your use, I am using white led strips for solar powered house lighting. My excess day time solar electric harvest is conserved in 12 volt lead acid batteries and allowed to light the rooms at Crusty Mansion during the night. To reduce a duplication of switch wires for the low volatage system I am using these very neat inline radio controlled switches, (could not make them for the price)
With regard to the NeoPixel strips, there are pictures on the Adafruit website of them attached to sneakers -- these would have looked amazing on the dancefloor at university discos when I was a student.
What am I saying? They would look amazing on my feet as I sit here in my office ... I think I can feel another urge coming on!!!
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
