FYI: These are not brighter - they are exactly the same in the bliptronic ones.

Very nice work marklar.

Don't be surprised if you are asked to do some commercial implementations.

Thank You.   I have done a nightclub using this method with 700 LEDs (and growing) with DJ control.  I am surprised how far you can run these before you get flicker.  One important point for long runs is you have to slow down the SPI speed as the run gets longer.  While the LEDs do act as repeaters .. that only goes so far (80 feet of LEDs or so before you run into a need to adjust speed).

But I am always open to trying to find something brighter.

As far as getting brighter versions, there are versions that have 3 SMD LEDs per "pixel" .. the metal ones.  Those are pretty bright as compared to the single pixel style .. but take a 12v power supply (not a big deal, just different).
