So last night I decided it’d be a great idea to open up my Kingsong 16X electric unicycle and see what I can upgrade inside it.
For reference, this is what it looks like right now.
There’s lights around the frame which are pretty good and it has a fairly basic sound responsive lighting mode based on the bluetooth audio being sent through it (Yes, it also has a 5.1 sound system in it).
That looks like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0yr_oJvASk (it rotates between an EQ and a ‘flashy flashy ooh the sound’ mode).
Now, I don’t know about y’all, but I think it needs well… more. More leds, more animations…
Right now it has this dinky ip65 RGB strip in it, with only 30 leds a metre. This looks like this:
VHB man in the Kingsong Factory says hi, it seems.
What would more look like? Well, like this:
This is 144 led per metre strip, in ip67 diffusing sheathing and it’s got an extra channel. Neutral white.
Stay tuned to see if I ever manage to get this into the wheel and get the wheel closed again.
