I am currently working on a stage for a friend and I have been considering using an Arduino to control the lighting. Here is a conceptual rendering.
There are 33 cubes that must be lit and all must be RGB capable. I've been told this is a reasonable amount.
I'll be the first to admit that I am a complete beginner when it comes to electronics and I have several friends helping in this department but I'd like to ask around first.
1) Is an arduino a sound choice / a feasible option for this project?
2) Are there LEDs bright enough that they will be able to light up these cubes through a thin plastic film (they let roughly the same amount of light through as paper)?
Thank you in advance,
