Probably forgetting some stuff but here’s a link to the lights in my room

skylite projector (my favorite)

aurora projector



There’s some black lights thrown in and also a Himalayan salt lamp

u/UzbekNative · 22 pointsr/itookapicture

Depends on the size of your room. I put together a list to the best of my abilities:

Probably start with something like this. They're 3.5m in length, so should be enough for most ceiling to floor installs. Say you're trying to fill a 300 sq.ft at a foot's distance for each, so you'll need at least 280 strings for somewhat even distribution. So that's at least $3500.

Second, you'll probably want some sort of scaffold attached to your ceiling, so that you can have space to run wiring from controller to the various LED strings. 2 feet of triangular photo light scaffolding runs at about $100, so I'm gonna take that. You'll need a conservative 50 of them to cover your 300sq ft ceiling adequately. So that's another conservative $5000.

LED control can be achieved with any computer, a few arduinos, and a few addressable LED controllers. Call this another conservative $1000.

Finally you'll spend a considerable amount (100+ hours) of time figuring out how to control all of this programmatically in a way that makes sense. That expense depends on how valuable your time is.

So I would call it $10k for a basic setup in a 300 sq foot room.

source: I've set up some basic computer controlled LED christmas lights/scenes in my apartment.

edit: for added effect, get about 5000 ping pong balls, and cut holes in them to mount onto the LEDs to diffuse the light.

u/JeSuisUnAnanasYo · 19 pointsr/CozyPlaces

These are the lights I used

The wire is really thin, so I was able to use these command strips with a clear backing every few feet.

u/zombiecslover · 12 pointsr/DIY

Nice! The Edison bulbs kinda add to the look I thought. Here they are Brightech Ambience Pro Commercial Grade Outdoor Light Strand with Hanging Sockets - 48 Ft Market Cafe Edison Vintage Bistro Weatherproof Strand for Patio Garden Porch Backyard Party Deck Yard – Black

u/appleandwatermelonn · 10 pointsr/GetStudying

If the room feels cold, maybe some copper string lights from amazon (UK / US) would help, thats what I use to make my room look a bit cosier, as well as having a nice candle to light (I use fruity smelling big candles but you could just get some cheap tealights and a candle holder too). This especially helps because my room is completely white with grey carpet so I really needed something that made it feel less cold.


I have a couple of low maintenance plants on there just to make it seem a bit more homely and I have a blanket for if I'm working late or get cold.


Would you be able to put up a little corkboard to stick some pictures and a schedule etc on?


Do you have any pen pots or organisers on your desk? I think ASOS have some nice ones or you could go to a local stationary shop and check out what they have there


Most of it is just little personal touches to make me feel more comfortable there and make me actually want to sit down and study.

u/thefinn93 · 9 pointsr/BurningMan

Our small camp of 5-6 takes a somewhat different approach. Our lighting is primarily strands of LEDs with build in panel, battery, etc that turn themselves on when it gets dark (such as these). We also have a number of battery powered lanterns (like this). Takes like 10 D cell batteries, which have lasted us 2 burns so far and showing no signs of dying.

I also have a solar system for non-essentials (wifi, phone/radio/camera charging, swamp coolers). I've got a few panels off craigslist (although Amazon is cheaper, as I later discovered, $125 or so for 100W), combined with a deep cycle marine battery or two (from craigslist or Costco) and of course a charge controller (Harbor Frieght, Amazon... idk, mine came with my over priced craigslist panels) worked well for all of that. In 2014 things got kind of last minute, so we ended up using an inverter for AC power, which was extremely silly as everything we were plugging in promptly changed it back to DC, so in 2015 we got a couple of DC-to-DC converters to step the voltage up or down as needed, and never went to AC. A lot of the stuff took 12V DC which was handy.

That's just our setup, idk if it helps or is a terribly good idea...

u/orcinovein · 7 pointsr/malelivingspace
  • Brookelinen for sheets

  • Down pillows from Target are ridiculously comfortable. Just make sure to get the firmness you like.

  • And since we are spending money here... read the reviews on the Hudson Bay blanket and then convince yourself not to buy it.

  • I think small LED string lights can look very nice if done correctly. I went to Michaels and bought two birch logs, stuck them in a vase, put a few rocks in the bottom and then tightly wound string lights one of the branches. I have it on a sunset/sunrise dimmer that automatically turns it on when the sun sets. I like the lighting it adds while also not becoming too feminine.
u/other_thoughts · 6 pointsr/arduino

See if you can 'enjoy' something from this list.

does a 'strand' count as a string ?
Is a worm a string?
Is this what you mean by string? (careful! there have12v powered sets)
add your own strings (grin)
Here is Adafruit NeoPixel Überguide
I suggest you need to read and understand about how to power the LEDs and power requirements.

Happy Good Friday

WS2811 LED Christmas lights

u/Frawg · 6 pointsr/InteriorDesign

I have 100 feet of those LED string lights on copper wires plugged into an outlet and run along the upper moulding all around my living room and dining area.

Basically these but longer:

They provide a fair amount of nice indirect light.

u/wipe_frnt_2_bak · 5 pointsr/InteriorDesign

Lights are something like this?

100Ft G40 Globe String Lights with Clear Bulbs-UL Listed for Indoor/Outdoor Commercial Use

They're i believe called bistro lights?

u/Mr_Soju · 5 pointsr/malelivingspace

I have those lights and decided against putting them up in my apartment. Why? Because they are freaking heavy. Seriously heavy and are better strung up if you attached them along a wire strung along. The cord is super thick. They are meant to be outdoors. You see these lights on so many outside patios.

I put these up in my place instead. Warm light, way more manageable to string up, and look good.

u/DimeInPieces · 5 pointsr/InteriorDesign
u/lissoms · 5 pointsr/plants

My home isn’t very humid, so my ivies tend not to put out roots at the nodes. I use these command strip clips for my pothos, and it looks really nice! You really can’t see the clips unless you’re looking super closely.

u/mack41 · 4 pointsr/malelivingspace

They really do a great job and I love the look

u/icecreamman99 · 4 pointsr/restaurateur

I bought these two years ago and ended up replacing the bulbs with LEDs within 6-12 months as the incandescent Edison bulbs went out. Ours are about 3' over our visitors heads and light a patio excellently, with no dimmer. We regularly get comments about how the lights really add to the patio's ambiance. We are a seasonal ice cream shop and I lazily left them out over the winter this year and they still function great.

u/AirwolfCS · 3 pointsr/BurningMan

Right - now that you mention it I remember you talking in a thread a few weeks back about making these

I don’t doubt that they’re indestructible. They look it.

Just sayin that these are pretty cheap and I’d be pretty surprised if you could find anything on playa that could damage them.

For example:

u/mcarterphoto · 3 pointsr/analog

Guessing it's a party vs. something you could add some lights? Your main issue will be light from the fire will be prominent, and it'll make silhouettes of everyone.

Maybe you could string a bunch of party lights over/around the area to get some fill that would balance out with any actual fire. I'd try for a warm or amber color (traditional filament bulbs will read as amber/orange on daylight film, LEDs you'd want a warm white or amber). Filters will just cut your exposure even more, but shooting daylight neg film in this situation will give you a warm look that you can balance out in printing/post to some extent. The lights could give some interesting compositions and bokeh.

If it were me (a guy who likes lighting and has some gear) I'd take a battery-powered manual flash like the cheap-used Vivitar 285, tape an orange gel to it (like a 1/2 CTO), stick a cheap Chinese radio slave on it, and have someone hold it up high and pointed where I wanted it. You'd need a flash meter or a DSLR to suss out the power of the flash. I do this a lot to mix tungsten light with flash in a small rig that doesn't need cables or stands. If you look at the BG of that shot, it's like 1/2 second exposure and has some motion blur, but the flash freezes the subject, which could be a cool look at a party.

If it's just you and a camera, fastest film you can get, shoot wide open, and really brace your body for longer exposure. With practice, you can shoot like 1/15th wide wider lenses. If you want to use your 135, might bring a tripod or monopod.

u/th3r3za13 · 3 pointsr/beadsprites

These are the ones I use! Command Outdoor light hooks. Shouldnt damage the wall (but for me it took off some of the paint on plaster so I would recommend being a bit careful when you move them off the wall.)

Edit: with the warping, I would recommend using textbooks/something heavy while you wait for it to cool :)

u/traphoopqueen · 3 pointsr/electricdaisycarnival

multiple portable chargers for phone, face/personal wipes, headlight instead of flashlight (easier to manage for those late night porta potty runs), flip flops for shower, pool floats instead of folding chairs (pack light since its not carside camping), snacks that wont melt (watch which kind/cliff bars you get), zipties to attach led lights like these/tapestries, super glue (jic) and an emergency kit (or if your mom is a nurse, just make your own with alcohol swabs, neosporin, all types of bandids/gauze and pain/allergy meds. you have no idea how many people will thank you for being prepared).

protip 1 : freeze a gallon of water along with other water bottles for your cooler.
protip 2: you can make a canopy with a tarp and tent poles but if you're not comfortable with making one, buy a beach umbrella for sure

u/SimonPage · 3 pointsr/DIY

Why not just cannibalize one of those solar powered patio lights? Everything you need is right there -- solar cells, circuitry, the works.

Something like this:

u/SpoonShiner · 3 pointsr/AmateurRoomPorn

u/portolesephoto · 3 pointsr/photography

Oh I love my fairy lights! They're really nice to have to spruce up the occasional still life photo and I usually keep some on hand for the detail shots when I shoot weddings or things around the house.

I had this really awesome boudoir client (who I met here on Reddit actually!) and she wanted some pictures in her t-rex onesie drinking whiskey. We decided to wrap her in fairy lights just 'cause, and I was totally hooked. After that I picked up a pair of these guys from Amazon. They're compact and battery operated.

u/Virgoddess · 3 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

I got the same one, too. It'll be here on Thursday.

For lights, I got these, because I wanted something soft and pretty and fairy lights just seemed right! I'm so ridiculously excited for it to get here.

u/Roommateeastlake · 3 pointsr/gardening

I got these from Amazon.

u/epicureanbibliophile · 2 pointsr/makeuporganization

I used these [Command Light Clips](Command Outdoor Light Clips, Water-Resistant Strips, Decorate Damage-Free, Ships In Own Container (AW017-20NA) which were the perfect size!

u/doodls · 2 pointsr/MusicBattlestations

Yes, go back to IKEA! Somewhere near the end, around the lamps and ceiling lights, I found these cheap cable snake sleeves:

I also use these for cables under the desk after separating out of the snake and organizing under the desk:
These too:

And these are great for individual cable control:

I've added to and removed from my setup half a dozen times since I last organized my wires so they're a mess again, so be aware that it's a constant battle.

Edit: these look pretty good too, am going to get some myself if I don't make it to IKEA soon:

u/iatehiscat · 2 pointsr/crafts

buy something like this and put the lights into the pots in bunches so they look pretty during the day and night.

u/coffeemaxed · 2 pointsr/HomeNetworking

Get some of these command strips and run the cable along the ceiling or baseboards. Might wanna grab a box of ethernet cable and some crimp connectors instead of pre-made cables so you can get the exact length you need. The command strips will come off easily when you're done with the place so you don't have to worry about paint damage.

Run some cables to each part of the house and put up some extra access points. Old wifi routers will work fine for this if you configure them in access point mode. You can run multiple APs on different channels for better coverage. If you set all the APs with the same SSID and password, your devices will hop between them depending on signal strength although your connection will momentarily drop as the device switches access points.

u/autumnwake · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

So here's my advice for making a living space you need on a budget. First, starting early is great! it gives you time to collect things and not panic!

  • It's summer so that means garage/yard sale time! If you come across one, stop and take a look. You never know what you might find as far as furniture or decorations or anything else! If you're able to find something, it's sure to be cool and unique from a garage sale. This will be a hunt.
  • Check out thrift stores as frequently as you can and try different ones in different cities! Stuff comes and goes and different cities have different demographics donating to their facilities. Similar to garage sales, it'll be a little bit of a hunt and you'll have to be able to see the potential among a bunch of junk. You can always try to recruit friends or family to do the hunting for you and tell them to keep an eye out for certain things you want to make it easier.
  • Craigslist for sale or free categories can have cool things too!
  • If you don't like the idea of used things or having to put in a bunch of effort to find things and you have an IKEA and Target near by I'd look there for cheap, simple but still cute furniture. IKEA also has decently cheap art and picture frames.

    Specific things to look for or try:

  • Try looking in old art or art history books for prints of famous pieces of work
  • Look for out of date or unused calendars for larger prints of various types
  • Etsy can be hit or miss on price and you'll have to keep in mind shipping costs but it can be a good place to get some really unique things. This is a really good deal I found. Got some really neat artwork that way and would recommend if you think that those prints look cool.
  • Postcards can be a good way to get some cheap pictures
  • Frame interesting fabric patterns/prints or stretch over canvas frame even
  • If you're not super artistic(like me) get one of those adult coloring books and color some pictures yourself!
  • Try fairy lights like these if you like the idea of christmas lights but want it to look more mature and polished.
  • If you want to skip frames, use some cute washi tape to tape up pictures and posters. It's just pretty colored/patterned tape. Just be careful since you'd be putting tape on the pictures themselves you won't be able to easily move them or reuse them without possibly damaging the edges if tape rips the paper or loses its stickiness.
  • There's a million different DIY art and decorations so explore and try different things out!

    And last thing: you don't need to have every decoration when you first move into the apartment. It's better to take your time and slowly add things you love instead of filling the space with things that are 'ehh, it's fine for now.'

u/vanillawafercaper · 2 pointsr/Wishlist

So I saw you said it didn't have to be related to goats, and I'm sure with the responses as well as your own personal searching you've seen almost everything (at least on amazon) goat related. So I looked through your wish list a bit and something that I kept seeing come up were things that were purple. Sometimes when I've got money burning a whole in my pocket and can't decide what to get, I just look up one work like for instance, the word "purple." Well, I looked it up and on amazon you've got options for a purple coffee maker, purple lights, purple butterfly wall art, purple car lights, or even a purple knife set. None of these things may actually interest you, but searching one word like that gives you such a broad range of things that might spark an idea for something similar.

Thanks for the contest and the #15 is also a favorite of mine so I appreciate you adding that as well! :)

There are other addressable LED strips that will work as long as they are WS2811 based and 5V (like these: ).


The ones I linked in my blog were the only ones I could find with that retro bulb look though.

u/feral_hippie · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

These are the exact ones I use. They charge in a few hours and will run for about 8 hours. They're bright enough to let you see your surroundings, and not so bright that they'll hurt your eyes.

u/forgotpasswordmeow · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning

We did lanterns with twinkle lights stuffed in them and a bit of dried green moss in the bottom of the lantern. Our favors were succulents from an Etsy shop and we used them as our "flowers" to brighten up the table (I did have to wrap them in burlap which took a few hours with two of my bridesmaids). We also used a mix of pink, white, pink/white, ivory silk flower petals from [another Etsy shop] ( to sprinkle on the table.

Here's how they turned out!

u/MMfuryroad · 2 pointsr/hometheater

I have this same set in a 65 inch with a Medialight LED bias light kit and these strips are easily cut down . Would have to ask the manufacture of yours what the steps are for doing the same but it should be able to. I used 3M Command clear plastic Christmas hanging clips.

They go on firmly but have a quick release pull tab attached to the adhesive strip for quick removal and I placed them in between every 3rd LED or so. I haven't even used the manufactures included tape behind the LED's because I want to be able to remove and move it for any future TV I buy.

I put the taller left side panel(front of TV left) back on the rear of my TV as 3 of the 4 HDMI ports and a single 3.0 USB port were still available just to the right of it and would give you a better pathway around that side of the set if you intend to cover 3 of the 4 sides. Here's some pics of mine.

u/BeevyD · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

I used TaoTronics LED String Lights 33 ft with 100 LEDs and 2 Pcs 3 x1.5V AA Battery Holder to make the lights. It takes 3 AA batteries and cost around $15 to make excluding shipping and batteries.

The lights them selves are waterproof and pretty durable. I primarily use the lights for cooking areas and around my tent.

(The last picture has a flash. The lights are no where near that bright, although they do illuminate enough)

u/littlemisschalk · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning

Costco has 48 feet of string lights for $49.

Also at Target yesterday it looked like most of their outdoor patio stuff is now 30% off (maybe in store only?) including outdoor string lights.

If not - check Amazon like everyone else recommended. Like these?

u/flying_alt · 1 pointr/flying

i just followed the examples in the adafruit neopixel library for the python side. The PHP is pretty self explanatory if you piddle around with PHP any.

i used these LEDs

A Raspberry Pi

this power supply to power the Pi and the LEDs

Heres the code

its just some PHP to scrape the metar and convert to flight condition and then some python to talk to the LEDs.

Schematics is plug the green wire from the LEDs to GPIO pin 18 on the R Pi.

I used a diode between power and the LED power as well. Cant remember why but I saw it one of the docs.

I run a cron every 15 minutes on the pi to run the PHP script and update the colors.

I'm a big fan of this kind of trance because it's the perfect thing to listen to while browsing the internet or reading or working. It's more than just a song, Simon Posford (writer and producer, also known for his work in Shpongle) is an experience that helps me mediate my thoughts and transforms me to another realm.

If you spend time out there in the evenings/nights, these solar lights are cool. They're best if they're in some plants or ivy. If you had a couple potted plants you can string these around. They don't throw off distracting light, just ambiance.

u/camerasandcats · 1 pointr/weddingplanning

Renting is hard to know without knowing what area you are in. I might be able to find some places in SF and Napa/Sonoma.

If you want to go really heavy duty, these will withstand any kind of weather:

But these $20 jobbers should be fine in most weather and you can probably re-sell after the wedding. Also lighter / easier to hang.

u/LemurButter · 1 pointr/DIY

Hi! So I picked up some copper string lights and need help sourcing a good method to hang them. They'll need to be attached to both a ceiling and a wall and I want the visual impact of the securing device to be minimal (why I'm not just using push pins or thumbtacks). Something like these command clips would be perfect if they didn't use 3M--that shit always wrecks my walls way worse than a tack or nail would.

So, either a thumbtack with a clear, flat head or something like the command clip that sticks into the wall sans 3M strip. Or any other creative alternative y'all wanna throw my way.

ok, this makes more sense to me. G40 is the large vinity style, but I kept finding them called G40s. I have some of these strands of lights. I think it says they're E12 socket bases. I believe i've heard them called candelabra base. I am making some letters for my cousins wedding. I like how the shape of the 2" bulb fits. It is all style though, I have some flexibility.

u/ChefJoe98136 · 1 pointr/electricians

This forum supposed to be for electricians of the type that do wiring for homes/buildings with outlets for devices. The sidebar also talks about rules for doing things compliant to code. Hacking together a battery tender (what is that 12 v and 2 amps?) to an extension cord isn't really what this place does.

However, couldn't you just get a long extension cable and use some 3m command hooks to run it up from a workbench, along the ceiling, and then dangle it down from the ceiling ? You can use a zip tie or one of those velcro cable ties to wrap the dangling end up in the air when needed.

u/Hype_man_SFW · 1 pointr/DIY

Do you want/need the ability to change the colors? I feel like adding color changing with mobile control is a bit overkill here. A simple backing board with LEDs hardwired, an on/off button or switch, and a small cord to plug it into the wall would be enough. Even if you want to use an Arduino I'd still suggest plugging in into a wall instead of batteries, especially if you include some form of mobile link.


Edit: if you are not good with circuits I would suggest starting with something like this, a power supply ( the 5V one they suggest will work) , and an Arduino with a library that works with the WS2811. Plug the lights into holes on a firm thin board behind the planets and light them up or flash them with the arduino. If you don't like the big bulbs and can solder you could also just glue these to the board.

If you get that going then add the mobile control, or don't, later.

u/Camo_Sheep · 1 pointr/DesignMyRoom

I made this so I could visualize it myself. Simple and minimalist, so it seems fairly low maintenance. I like a black painted wood bench (add some pillows for your style), a black metal end table, and simple decor like potted plants and oversized lanterns. I think the curtain helps close in the area and make it look more cozy. I know this style isn't for everyone and may not exactly match your house exterior, but let me know if you like it :)

u/qkzo · 1 pointr/CozyPlaces

These are the ones I got. When I first got them they were extremely bright, a little too much for my preference but after a little while they have dulled down and have been much better.

u/LoomaHome · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

One thing I'd do: Match the outdoor living space to match the indoor living room. It'll look like a natural extension of the living room, making the space feel even bigger. Even if you don't go out there very often, even if the outdoor decor echoes/complements the indoor living room decor, visually-speaking it'll make the space seem huge.

Make the outdoor space look cozy and inviting by hanging up some cafe lights (you can get them on Amazon) and drapes on the ceiling. Get an area rug that can withstand the elements (this one is pretty neutral), some outdoor furniture and potted plants, and suddenly, your living room looks huge, even if you never go out to the balcony :).

u/leeloodallas502 · 1 pointr/InteriorDesign

Sounds like a decently large space. I'd start by putting these teak tiles down to make it seem more like a deck- tiles

Then make yourself a cool plant wall. Get some pots and soil and herbs from a local place and grow stuff. Even if you don't have much sun there's options for some greenery.

Hang some cool outdoor lights like these: lights

Finally, give yourself some seating with either a cafe style table and chairs, a small outdoor couch, or a couple of outdoor rocking chairs with a small side table.

u/Joe_Alcohol · 1 pointr/DIY

Here's a link to the string lights that I bought from Amazon. I've been really happy with them. I used 2 strands at 25' each and had to take out about 8 of them and tuck the extra string into the last pole. They're bright enough to sit out there with just them on at night yet they're not overpowering.

They also have some that are made for chords, but they're a little more expensive. I'm guessing the ones the OP linked will do just fine though.

And you'd recommend doing string lights along with the natural light? Or covering up the windows? Is there any kind of string light that would be better? I had my eye on these. Given the dimensions of the room (I don't know for sure, but somebody else estimated roughly 40' by 42'), I figured three of the 100' ones would cover it pretty well?

Here's my initial write-up on it. I'm using 12mm "pixels" (no endorsement, just first link I found on amazon) but I'm using a ws2801 version. For power, I'm now using four 3A power supplies, each with a battery pack of six shitty 18650 cells in parallel which means I basically don't have to worry about running out of battery in an evening out but I've got more size/weight in battery than I would have if I had built my battery pack out of better cells.

Dude... a string of 50, pre-wired and IP68, is $15. 500 for $115.

Thanks. I needed another hobby.

One thing I have always wanted to try is using a mouse bungie, it sounds kind of dumb but I think it would work well

edit: my form of cable managment is to attach a command wire loop to my keyboard in the blank spot near the arro keys and just run the cable safely over my keboard, it never gets in they way or hits my keys, BTW I have a G910 fullsized

Here is the BOM:
Got these because they were black PCB, don't like the way it was waterproofed but actually worked pretty well probably more robust than the coated ones.

This was the controller I used (I'm sure you can find them without the LEDs, it's Bluetooth which isn't as common as you might think)

Handy connectors
HKBAYI 50Pair / 50sets 3 pin JST SM Male Female plug LED Connector Cable For WS2812B WS2812 WS2811 LED Strip Lamp with 15cm Long Wire

I also used some nice outdoor rated PSA foam tape to hold everything on along with a few black zip ties just in case. Wired everything and sealed with silicone. Make sure you don't serialize the strips they should be all connected in parallel so they chase in unison.
They are connected to my AUX power output using the standard automotive 12V plug. They come one when my bike does. Which is fine. If I want to turn them off you can do so from the app for the controller.

That's it. Now to start on the custom controller. Anyone connected to the CAN bus on this bike? That would be the easiest way to get speed.

I bought the hanging bulb sets from Costco that look like THIS.

Note: I'm not recommending that brand from Amazon the look is just similar (maybe the same thing??)

Then I added some LED light strips around my deck which have a cheap remote for different functions. I really dont use anything other than "on" so I never use that remote.

On/Off is controlled through a GE Z wave outdoor plug inside of an outdoor box under my deck.

Nothing fancy, but wife loves it.

You could use non destructive cable clips if you want.

u/cj3636 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Lol. I'm in this now. I am going to make a program that supports typical R / G / B / 12v 4 pin headers and the (DeepCool has it on their coolers, but its now pretty standard) 3 pin + power addressable RGB strips.


Like get a remind me for this. I am gonna make it happen.

Gonna use an Electron/NodeJS GUI for it and everything.


I'll begin with this project and go from there.


I will go as far as mapping each sound input and output device to any RGB strips connected to a PC.


Oh lord I'll even be using some of this code from the best rainmeter plugin there is.


Best part:

Things like these and thesewill be compatible.

u/ladyaccountant · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You NEED these fairy lights!!! How freaking cute!!!

u/hazelowl · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I love these pretty lights!

Although I was tempted by Pirate Fluxx too, but I already have like three copies of various Fluxx incarnations.

u/saroka · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I really liked these lights.

Knowing that there is no electricity at the campsite.. SOLAR POWER!!

At least thats what we did last year, and it worked great! We had little driveway lights all around our campsite so finding it at night would be easy. They were something like these

And now I've discovered that amazon even has solar powered string lights! How cool would these be at your campsite?:

No electricity? No problem! Nothings a problem when you're in the forest ;) Also not the best video but here I am hula hooping!

u/AspiringVoiceOver · 1 pointr/LightningInABottle

I am bringing an Aurora Borealis projector. Runs off usb. Gonna lay down in a vag bag and use it under the ez up or before bed in the tent.

Got this as well. Gives a nice warm light, its super long too. And you can mount the whole thing on a flag and use the remote to control it. I do think the multi colors would look cooler, but the warm white is more useful as a light.

u/zwardlaw · 1 pointr/DIY

These will do it. Have them. Remote can set them to auto dim and come back on at different intervals

u/zackmoro · 1 pointr/boostedboards

Here’s the link to lights

I wiped the area with rubbing alcohol before installing. Make sure to order Velcro strips. Also use a screw to hold the battery cover in place so it doesn’t fall from Vibration. I’d say it’s been on for 4 months. I don’t ride in rain or wet conditions.

u/Elphi- · 1 pointr/plants

You could look into getting a non-climbing vine like pothos and "train" it upwards by threading them through command hooks like these mounted on the walls outside, that way you can easily disassemble it if you need to. Here's a great instagram post with pics if you need help visualizing it.

Dimmable Copper Wire lights

If you are going to have exposed wire string lights, I think you need to go with copper wire.

u/SquaredCircle84 · 1 pointr/DIY

Rather than the Target brand bulbs, we ordered these commercial grade lights. Hopefully they can stand up to some stronger weather. Thanks for the input.

u/KeesteredShiv · 1 pointr/AskElectronics

gotcha, i've used these 12mm modules before to make a 1920 LED matrix with a single teensy:

but it sounds like you're committed to the LEDs you have. I guess I'm just confused as to why you wouldn't daisychain all 4 TLC5940s to save pins and just treat each aurora separately in code

u/smrfkilr · 1 pointr/raspberry_pi

You can possibly use these., they are similar to what you have shown. I am just getting back into RPi, and arduino. I bought a string of these last christmas and they are pretty cool. They use the libraries that Adafruit has for the 2811 and another library but I can't remember it off the top of my head and I have to start from scratch I think I may have been using arduino for this, but Pi may work too?

u/KoloHickory · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace
u/servercobra · 1 pointr/StrangerThings

The lights are individually addressable, so when they're hooked up to an Arduino, you can set each light to blink individually, be a different color, etc. I used this Arduino library and these lights.

u/fieryinferno · 1 pointr/wedding

Can you lay them on the ground at edge of the dance floor? Rather than use traditional string lights, try these on thin copper wire. They are very flexible and can bend in tight angles.
