It works.

OMG YOU GUYS IT WORKS!



So each of the strips is now a self-contained unit that clips into the loom at the top. The power feeds off the loom, and the data goes from the bottom of one strip into the top of the next, chaining them together so the LEDs can be programmed as a single unit running off one pin. That's cos the wee microcontroller couldn't handle telling all of the eventual strips what to do individually.

Anyway, nothing blew up and I'm kind of rapt about that. Now I have to make another 19 of them. The next test vid might be a while away.
