“We’ve been working on large LED-strip based installations for display at Burning Man for years. This combination of backgrounds gives us the experience necessary to execute this project – we’ve already made several working prototypes. We know there are lots of great smart poi options out there, and we have tons of respect for the other manufacturers, who are making great products. However, they’re all rather expensive (well over $200, $600, or even $1000), some of them aren’t custom programmable, and none of them are very hacker-friendly.”
