    Justine Aw explains the process:

    The boats house individually programmable RGB LEDs controlled by a system including an Arduino, a Rasperry Pi as DHCP and Web server, a wireless access point, bespoke DMX circuitry and and software that lets visitors change the patterns and colors of the lights by connecting to the specialized local wireless network and visiting voyage.co.uk.

    I love how this simple idea, executed well, can make a public space all the more interesting.
