    Dynamic, arduino-driven colored LED backlighting display.
Dynamic IDeATe LED Display
I was asked to light up the IDeATe (Integrative Design, Arts and Technology) sign that hangs in front of Carnegie Mellon's interdisciplinary makerspace.

Using an Arduino, a set of RGB LEDs, a surge protector, a lot of tape, and a lot of trial and error, I built a dynamic rear-lighting system (with help soldering and taping from a friend). 

Since the lights run on an Arduino that I attached to the sign with a 3D printed enclosure, the display can be programmed in the future by other students.
