Black Hole's V.I.N.CENT MPC model lighting kit

Post by TurkeyVolumeGuessingMan » Wed Aug 02, 2017 12:39 am

A friend sent me the link to something cool he found on a starship lighting group on FacePalm. It's a lighting kit for MPC's V.I.N.CENT kit.

I am told that these are sold for about 50 pounds. Is this something that could be more cheaply replicated with one of these arduino devices that is discussed on here?

Yeah that controller board looks like major overkill, although I get the impression that's just a generic driver with far greater capabilities.

When I saw the controller board, I thought, "what the hell?" It is too big to fit inside of the model. I think learning how to do an Arduino would be far cheaper, but it requires some studying.
