The strip lighting says that each light can be controlled individually; could something like a TLC5940 be used to control 16 of them?

good luck getting efficiency with arduino though... teensy 3 mind!
for clarity, the teensy3 will be able to quite easily... not so much the arduino
i have been reliably informed that you can get about 100fps on simple animations, and about 30fps on complicated ones... this is assuming 256 leds in a single string (like these things technically are)
