WS2801 LED strips + Arduino Mega + FastSPI library = awesome

New version using a TEENSY!   64 RGB leds wired up using only 2 spi communicaton wires in excess of 100fps leaving tonnes of cpu overhead room for calculating the animation. *(I have to use delays to slow down the animation or its too fast to see with the eye, let alone capture with a camera)Strip:  (x2)
Waterproof self-adhesive rgb addressable strips.  INSANELY bright for 5050 leds.  at full white 2 strips draws just under 2 amps/5 volts, they get a bit warm but nothing serious.uC: Arduino mega 1280; I found my duemilenove didn’t have the storage capacity for this program.  Anything ‘uno’ or better should do.Library: 
Special thanks to Daniel for writing his amazing library.  Has support for many types of led strips and absolutely destroys software serial for getting the data out!  This is the sample animation that comes with the library to get you started.  It took just a bit of tweaking the software and wiring to get it working.Planned projects:
Ambilight for computer
Midi drum/keyboard visualizer
Random party light/vu meter
