    Cool! I think this head will be a good replacement. It produced no heat at all. The efficiency is really high and almost all the power goes into the light generation and not into heat.

    Excellent work !!
    Love the concept and execution.
    Hopp Schwiiz !! ;-)

    Any reason, why one shouldn't use LED strip lights as a light source? Some green, blue and UV ones perhaps?

    No. You can use a strip as long it has ws2812b LED on it. These are compatible with the library. A neopixel matrix is just more comfortable as the LED are closer together and you don’t need to solder wired to the strip chunks.

    Very Cool! Good job!

    I did a similar project for several enlargeres using single LEDs and RGBW LEDs, will look into using a matrix as well. If you have time, there are some info, code and schematics here
