I used blinkytape to make a hula hoop and to do this I needed to extend the tape by soldering on another length of tape. The tape is compatible and with minor changes to ColorSwirl/PatternPlayer it works great (I just changed the number of LEDS #define
to 180 rather than 60).
It would be great to use PatternPaint to define patterns for the extended tape, but the problem is that I need to update the Arduino .hex file encoded into PatternPaint to support the larger tape.
Is there an easy way to update the hex image in PatternPaint? Do you have a script that does this or can you just explain which parts of the .hex should go into PatternPlayer.h? I could probably figure this out by pattern matching but I thought I would ask first
Thanks for creating blinky tape -- great product and very easy to use!
