===What's the project?=== [[Image:Award Winning FlaschenTaschen.jpg|right|500px|thumb|The Makerfaire Editor's Choice Award-winning Flaschen Taschen]] The Award Winning Flaschen Taschen is a 10’ by 9’ (3m x 2.75m) video display made out of clear glass bottles, milk crates, RGB LED strings (with a total of 1575 LEDs), and a controller board. Each bottle is capped with a single addressable RGB LED. The bottoms of the bottles act as lenses for the emitted light. The project has a German name as homage to c-base’s [http://matelight.rocks/ Mate-Light] project. After seeing Mate-Light at Chaos Communication Congress, we were inspired to build a similar project at Noisebridge to present at the 2016 Maker Faire. Another inspirational build is the [http://www.zuloark.com/muro-de-botellas/ Muro de botellas] project. Our goal was to have it completed for [http://makerfaire.com/bay-area/ Maker Faire 2016] to be shown as part of our booth and we were two weeks ahead of schedule. After the MakerFaire, the display will be permanently installed within Noisebridge and possibly made available for events. Our code and hardware that drives up to 16 LED strips from a Raspberry Pi is on [https://github.com/hzeller/flaschen-taschen Flaschen-Taschen github]. We only need 9 strips in this project, one for each crate column. The update rate of the full FlaschenTaschen display is up to 160fps!
