Idea Outline

We have a lot of high up windows around the hackspace. We would like to have some kind of colour changing illuminated display to put up for Christmas to light the windows up.

Suggestions
Arduino / Pi driven RGB LED Strings simply changing colour. Possibly interactive
XKCD Colour names as with Lapin Lumiere
Luis F's RGB LED Display Panels. Can we figure out how to drive them and do something fun with them?
RGB LEDs but more than just strings of LEDs
