For the LED chasers, a person named donnie programs them for you. In total you need 3 LED chasers which adds up to around $50 I think. Here is Donnie's email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. On the plasmado site, I would recommend getting the mode numbers that tek has.
Anymore questions, feel free to ask. I am trying to get all of the components for my LED kit, so maybe we can work together on it by helping each other out.

At some point I need to work up a to do list for this thing, because it's gotten so massive and so complicated it's not only hard to keep track of it all, but hard to remember where the small 'lightbulb' moments and ideas go and what parts they are applicable to. I'm partially loathe to get 'that' organized about this project, because it strays towards 'work' and I like the amorphous nature of this project and how mush flexibility I can design into it. But I think it needs organization now.
I'm sure long time followers are wanting to kick me given the immense lack of progress. Work is suppose to get to normal-ish levels in the net few weeks when a number of the deadlines coalesce.

I haven't gotten that far myself but here are some ideas that I've had:
A) take a bicycle helmet and remove the extraneous external hard foam. Cut and form it to shape so it fits in the bucket (Thomas helmet). Break it in half and glue it back together inside the helmet if need be.
B) do something similar with a climbing helmet or a construction hard hat. The difference being, those two types use a 'suspension band' style system that anchors to the hard bits, and so you may only need to remove those anchor bits from the surrounding plastic.
C) have a fiberglass 'head cage' made that is mounted to the helmet internals. The head cage is custom made most likely using a 'stone' cast of your head, since fiberglass + resin + hair + skin = something very very bad. Probably most expensive option but deadmau5 (yes the real one) had this done for one of his LED buckets, probably to help support the massive weight.
