About

We started out wanting to create an interactive light display that would allow an individual to draw light pictures in a pixel like fashion. 

Having a fixed panel of lights that could be used to create pictures results in a massive size and many of the lights would not be utilized; so we broke the lights down into individual modules that can be configured as one wishes.

These are creatively referred to as Nesting Hive Lights!

Each module features a powerful computer and daylight readable multi coloured LEDs that are user adjustable to output a variety of colours in the RGB spectrum.

The colour is engaged and changed by rotating a tactile ring on the top of the module, that’s it the only physical input needed to create multicoloured displays

Each module has 6 connection points which allow it to be connected to additional modules.

Now colourful displays can be efficiently created.

Each module has a unique number which allows for special operating modes.

A computer can control the display, effectively locking the display from changes.

Hundreds of lights can be joined together using multiple power input blocks in any configuration imaginable

Risks and challenges

This product is at the ready to manufacture stage.

Several vendors have been contacted to handle the manufacture of the individual components. A delay from one of these could result in delays as alternate sources will have to be specified and contracted.

The current time line from vendor contact to first part available is 4 to 6 weeks. Assembly will have to be made and product testing concluded. We have allocated adequate time for this to be done.
