    The way you ran into issues and then showed us how you solved them was extremely refreshing and appreciated. You used every obstacle as an excuse to learn more and complete your project.

  2. Deepraj Vernekar on January 26, 2023 at 10:05 pm

    Man!!! come and build it for me 🙂

  3. Bliss Jung on January 26, 2023 at 10:06 pm

    What a beautiful wall. Never going to do this but throughouly enjoyed your video and how cohesive and well put together it was.

  4. tenkate 1098 on January 26, 2023 at 10:09 pm

    That’s Awsome if your living in another dimension. Maybe a world thats based on the 80’s

    Can you use metic units in your next video?

  8. Jason Lanning on January 26, 2023 at 10:15 pm

    Smart Dude!

  9. Luke Walker on January 26, 2023 at 10:16 pm

    Imperial is so fustrating. Fantastic outcome!!

  10. Peacemaker2 on January 26, 2023 at 10:16 pm

    Great project! I just don’t understand why you would prefer 5v over 24v when you had to add extra power for 3 times.

  11. Andy S on January 26, 2023 at 10:18 pm

    Great video. Looking to do something similar with my room project. How did you hard the wires at the top of the LED strips?

  12. Kiadaci on January 26, 2023 at 10:18 pm

    I may have missed it, but what did you use to put over the LED Lights? That clear tubing thing that makes the lights work a lot better.

  13. JavonDGreen on January 26, 2023 at 10:19 pm

    I imagine the backup data cable was working as an active antenna causing you issues. Very thin unshielded cable picking up noise. Doesn’t take very much noise to create a signal especially if it’s being amplified by the controller.

  14. Sean Omight on January 26, 2023 at 10:21 pm

    This seems like so much work for this. But, the different sized leds does give that Harry Potter floating candle effect, and it looks like they go further back then they actually are. So its like it gives it depth, which is cool looking. I like it. But doing all of this myself one day. idk.

  15. Djozze1 on January 26, 2023 at 10:23 pm

    Your data run was too long… you needed a repeater to stop the flickering.

  16. FroZenThai on January 26, 2023 at 10:26 pm

    I recommend checking out black diffusers.
    They blend in with the black slatts, but also great when you have lighter slatts and have leds in between.

  17. Outthehouseprod on January 26, 2023 at 10:27 pm

    What is the length of your wall?

  18. Bryan James on January 26, 2023 at 10:27 pm

    Is there anything out there to let you drive leds like this using a video. I imagine something like a canvas for you to place where your light features are, or where in the x and y you want each feature to sample from, and uses various videos to drive the leds? Does wled do this?

  19. Sebastian S on January 26, 2023 at 10:28 pm

    This was an excellent, informative, well-filmed video. Thank you!

  20. Jon Korn on January 26, 2023 at 10:30 pm

    Looks incredible! The sanding paid off big time. For your flickering, best guess is you had a short on one of the backup data connections. I have soldered hundreds of LED strips together and use a magnify glass and bright light. Even then sometimes you can’t see the one strand that bridges the data to ground or power. Those 4 pin strips are a MFer to work with. You deserve a medal for getting them to work.

  21. ALPS RODRIGUEZ on January 26, 2023 at 10:30 pm

    Nice proyet whish panels you use

  22. Dan Rawkt on January 26, 2023 at 10:30 pm

    Try WLED on a Esp32 next time.

  23. Serge B on January 26, 2023 at 10:31 pm

    @17:51 DEFINITELY, you SHOULD connect the red wires together and the black as well. This way, by injecting power on both ends, you can halve the number of power injections for the same result (or keep the same number and improve brightness AND flickering). PLUS you should connect grounds together on separate supplies (and only grounds, not VCC)

  24. MO on January 26, 2023 at 10:32 pm

    beautiful work

  25. Sara Daigle on January 26, 2023 at 10:33 pm

    Man this looks fantastic. Thanks for the inspiration!

  26. gade1991 on January 26, 2023 at 10:35 pm

    18.49 the red clips are bad to use, can create bad connections

  27. Jack Hagerman on January 26, 2023 at 10:36 pm

    This is cool! I recommend SK6812 LEDs as they have a white channel so the white is much more balanced and brighter. Also would highly recommend WLED

  28. Melvin Pinales on January 26, 2023 at 10:36 pm

    Thanks for the explanation but this thing is still complicated to me.

  29. Thiago Espeche on January 26, 2023 at 10:37 pm

    Foda pra caralho!

  30. Abdullah Ahrari on January 26, 2023 at 10:42 pm

    Where can I find the justin bieber photo with the slat wall?

  31. Patrick H on January 26, 2023 at 10:44 pm

    Beautiful and amazing. I would do all the work before painting them.

  32. Davi sexton on January 26, 2023 at 10:45 pm

    Looks good and clean. Just curious what the lenses of the LEDs look like when the lights are turned on during the day? How visible are there where is the slats are black?

  33. Robert Baker Photography on January 26, 2023 at 10:46 pm

    amazing and thanks for sharing all your details.

  34. Floris on January 26, 2023 at 10:47 pm

    Fucking dope!!!!

  35. Jordan R on January 26, 2023 at 10:48 pm

    Best tutorial for this project on the Internet

  36. Michael Palatsi on January 26, 2023 at 10:49 pm

    This video is great and all but where do I get your shirt? 🙂

  37. David B on January 26, 2023 at 10:49 pm

    Wait, why not put the LEDS in the dark recesses where they won’t show up till you turn them on?

  38. xpontiac on January 26, 2023 at 10:52 pm

    kudos to the well-put-together tutorial! I know that it took a lot more work than many could imagine, so I just wanted to point that out and show my appreciation! Plus, the outcome looks incredible!

  39. Grizzly Patriots of Colorado on January 26, 2023 at 10:53 pm

    using MDF might be easier??

  40. CoB Tyrannon on January 26, 2023 at 10:55 pm

    How is the cleaning of this wall. I can imagine there will be a lot of dust and spiderwebs behind them after a bit of time. Any infos on that?

  41. Francisco Morales on January 26, 2023 at 10:58 pm

    Looks amazing!!!

  42. LED Lighting Accessories-LeDe Electronic on January 26, 2023 at 10:59 pm

    Nice job

  43. Phuc-Hoang, Anh-Tu on January 26, 2023 at 10:59 pm

    Hang led

  44. Gary Stought on January 26, 2023 at 10:59 pm

    Great video! To fix your flicker, add a resistor to the data line. See it @ 13:40 in this video

  45. User_i.d on January 26, 2023 at 11:02 pm

    this is why electrician charge so much because its not as simple as putting up a few leds.
