Remember the RGB LED we put on the side? We thought it'd be a great idea if it could somehow indicate the percentage completion of the drawing instead of randomly fading between the colors. So we tweaked our code again and this is how it works now:

Awaiting input :  Breathing blue lights

Drawing  [0 % = RGB (255,0,0) ]  ------ [Transition] -----> [100 % = RGB(0,255,0)]

pure red                                                          pure green

It looks great when we tested out Ironman! But we forgot to capture the pics until we finished. We shot a new Joker video and its under processing. It should be out tomorrow. 

In the meantime, have you checked out the incredible Animatronic Iron Man MKIII suit yet?
