    Craig -

    Welcome!

    What type of display do you do, if anything yet? I have a son in Surprise, AZ that has never seen animated lights in person; he's not likely to see anything more than videos of mine. I'd like to send him and his kids your way if you have something to show this year.

    Thank you for the welcomes from all

    I have done some decorating through the years but because of present health issues, I'm not able to do the work required for the kind of display I would like to do. I did a few years of a sequenced display but only did a few songs and never bought more than 1 CTB-16 and an iDMX. I do however, love to make things and spend my time playing in my workshop .

    I know someone in Glendale, AZ that has a great display every year. I think he is a member here and his website is www.TwoDogLights.com. I don't know the Phoenix area very well but I think that is fairly close to Surprise. I know William would love to show your son his display!! There are many others in the Phoenix area as well that have good displays .

    Craig,

    Let me add my welcome also! and let me say, you are too modest about "playing" in your workshop.

    Forgive me for "outing you" but I am a great admirer of your "workshop talents" Since many of us are building Mighty Minis and Rainbow floods, Craig designed what I feel like is the ultimate RGB flood. LOR bought the product from Craig, and perhaps Craig is not allowed to comment on the product anymore, but I'll include a link to a video on a prototype of this unit.




    Also see this thread:

    Maybe this product will be released by LOR one of these days, but I admire Craig for the initial product design.

    I do know some development from other people is in the final stages now.

    That's great news, William. A person can never have too many controllers or too many RGB floods.

    Bring them on!

    Well, I really have had bad experiences talking about what I do. I am retired and disabled, so I do what I do purely for the joy it brings to me and others. I work in 'the background' now and it is much better for me and my health. I don't need anyone to know who I am and what I do, I don't do it for that reason. I do, however, love to see the happiness a new product brings to others.

    It is nice to meet you all!!

    Craig
