I ordered a bunch of wifi development boards from China the other day. I love playing around with them, it's like.. networked arduinoes.

I also got a single data line RGB led strip I could control using said microcontrollers.

I haven't measured but the packaging says 18 watts per meter and I have a 5 m and a 4 m strip. They operate at 5V too which kinda sucks because I don't really like low voltage high current applications :P

@evertprants Crazy. Looks like fun though. Don't burn the house down. 😀

@lambdafunk
Haha I'll try not to yeah XD
I don't need to light all the LEDs at once anyway and I have a 10A (supposedly) power supply. For some reason I have reason to doubt these power ratings, I guess they're for full intensity white light.
