I've been looking into making a led light system and after doing a lot of research on this project I haven't been able to find a hardware guide that seems to fit.
The goal of the project would be to have multiple strips of lights(10-15 led's) 2'-3' apart going up and down where the user will be able to select which lights to turn on and off and what colors to make the lights. I want it to be able to show letters and numbers.
It will be a large project - it will hang from the front of my house.
What hardware should I get for this project? Any advice will be appreciated.
