2019-09-11 (W) PillarGame

Power lines running through the PVC had to stay hidden. The power and data lines at the base of the pillar were run into a hole. The plugs were so large that a step drill bit cut the hole so it would be wide enough.
Leading LED power wires and communication

Wires inside the pipe were cut uncomfortably short, so it was a challenge to get them all secured. I used some lever-locking wire connectors because they were easy to operate inside the pipe, whereas a screw terminal would have been difficult.
Power wires coupled at base

Five volts from the power supply was connected to the LED pillar and tested. The blur() function and white() function both worked well. All the lights seemed to function uniformly. In the picture, they appear purple is but this was less pronounced in real life and could be partially an effect of the algorithm.
Base suspended upsidedown

More functions were tested with the base now that the power could support any amount the lights could draw. The prandom algorithm was the most fun but setting them all to full strength made for an effective room lamp.
All LEDs strobing at psuedo random and full brightness
