Daft punk module – just add table

This is just an 8×8 LED matrix, but the size and execution make it look marvelous. [Michu] built this module using foam board dividers to separate the cells, a foam board back to host the 64 RGB LEDs, and a sheet of heavy frost diffusion gel that is a stage lighting product. The display is driven by a Rainbowduino with input from a processing sketch. The effects seen in the video after the break are quite pleasing, and are just begging to be installed in your next coffee table project.

    So what makes the “Daft Punk”? Has Daft Punk become and adjective?

  3. mulder says:

    @macona Daft Punk became an adjective right after “and” became an indefinite article. :)

    @macona
    Daft Punk has always been an adjective. It’s a sub-genre of Punk, just because somebody uses it for the name of their music..doesn’t make it any less of a description or genre. So yes, it actually is.

    @macona – It’s the kinda visuals you would see at a Daft Punk show.

  6. toodlestech says:

    It’s called a daft punk table because it’s a copy/form of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfkQjGu3cBI which the creater called a daft punk table years ago.
    This project seems kinda lame though because all it is doing is displaying low-bit “images” in a timed interval rather then cool visuals to the beat of the music.

    Do you sleeping with a golden helmet?

    toodlestech : It’s called a “Daft Punk Coffee Table” because the original model was designed by Daft Punk in 2004 for the british furniture store Habitat.

    I don’t have the kind of money they charge for a “Golden Helmet”.

    This ain’t Vegas.

    Okay I might have misunderstood that…
