I know there have been some topics on this and I have been searching the web for Ideas. However, my question is a little different. I just moved into a new apt, and my bedroom has no overhead lighting. I was thinking of using LEDs to light the room. However I don't know the best route for this. I was thinking of following the 8x8 matrix guides and making 8 light bars basically and spread them out around the ceiling in the room. Or to try and Charliplex a big strand around the room.
I'm a quick learner and a beginning EE student so I know a little about programming/electronics but need some guidance as this is a little ambitious.
But do you guys think this is even a viable option or should I just go with some crap floor lamp?
