LED Strip Spiral Dome

A project demonstrating a technique of twisting a loop of perforated metal strapping(pipe hanger) and applying LED strip to them. Fairly simple, project that utilizes a surplus/reuse 20" diameter diffused hemi-sphere, probably made of HDPE, some 12 volt RGB LED strip, perforated metal strapping, MDF base board, and a NLED 30 Channel High Current LED Controller. The controller is a bit overkill for a project such as this, as it can handle many times more 12 volt LED strip than what is used here, but in the spirit of reusing, the particular controller used was an early prototype and otherwise would have been scrapped. Alternatively (addressable) LED pixel strip and a compatible controller, such as a NLED Pixel Controller Ion, could have been used.
