The housing for the display has been made, with a lot of help from my dad, and today I installed the LED strip into it. The light bar is separated into twenty segments by dividers and one LED pixel is installed in each segment. There is a slot in the front to receive a piece of fluorescent light fixture diffuser sheet to make it look nice and clean, and to hide the LEDs and wiring. I'm working on code to make more interesting effects and I think the microphone pre-amp needs higher gain. There will be some arcade style buttons to select different music effects and such when it is finished.
