I ordered two from ebay. We'll see who gets theirs first.

I have a friend who would really like something like this for his outdoor (but out of the weather) patio cover lighting.
He has white mini-lights and likes the look. I think he needs color. The Bluetooth control for his phone, if it works well, seals the deal.
A few power supplies and power injection should handle enough pixels for his whole patio.

Wearable clothing fans, if all they want is color and color patterns, would be happy.
