The Fusion Brain v3, superseded by version 4 and soon v6, connects via USB and has, amongst other hardware, 12 outputs. I have connected these to relays via ethernet connections (simple wire connectivity) to control the four power plugs, from which the lights gain their power.
Versions 4 and 6 have PWM capabilities, and the v6 boards will have 31 outputs.
I edited the original code to be less hardware dependent, placing all hardware operations in HardwareHandler.cs (renamed from PhidgitHandler.cs)
Yes, its a terrible light show, but that's more my lack of artistic ability than any lack of software capability :D

Source code redone to use my FusionBrain.DLL http://uniquelycommon.com/extern/Fus...usionBrain.zip
As of right now I introduced a bug that blocks communication with the board :( but I'm working on it.
EDIT: ah, found my stupid mistake(s). All is well! Note that this was tested with a FBv3 board (singular) as that's all I have. If you find a bug, please report!

hard to tell from the video, what are you using to interface the fusion brain to the lights? How is the FB connected to your home power supply
