@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!!!
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
