Taking a quick look at the new Smart (chain-able) differential deceivers. Also go through a Falcon F16V3 firmware upgrade to support the new boards.
Troy sent me two of his spheres (thanks Troy!) and I show you how they go together.

I noticed problems with the P10 panels at the end of last year and decided to upgrade to P5 panels. Simple swap of the hardware, but the software on the BeagleBone Black gave me some trouble.
Well, I finally got around to dealing with this prop that was still hanging around. I changed the design a little.
A funky version of Joy To The World that’s a neighborhood child favorite. Camera is a Sony FDRAX53/B 4K HD camcorder (https://amzn.to/2Qu24CQ). Multiple camera angles mixed in Adobe Premiere.
I had some time this past weekend to work on one of the props bothering me a little. The new frame did what I wanted. After reaching a stopping point, I noticed something really bad.
This is the sequence I spent the most time on last year and added the new 2018 props to the mix. The music is two custom songs I created on my iPad. Also trying out the multi-camera feature of Premiere – I like it. I hope you do too! Camera is a Sony FDRAX53/B 4K HD camcorder (https://amzn.to/2Qu24CQ).

This is a short video on my 110v main layout for the display. I’m running one circuit and powering off most of the display after the show ends. The big switch is a Wemo Insight (https://amzn.to/2Q4X4VU) module from Belkin controlled from Home Assistant (https://www.home-assistant.io) or the Wemo app on my phone.
Message to new subscribers and completed setup. Complete walkthru and some prop construction details.

Started setting up the display this week because I have a lot to do (new stuff) and weather may not be great as we get closer to Thanksgiving. I didn’t make a ton of progress, but am set up for the weekend work.
