How quick can you solder?

I am working in a project for the fashion brand Purificacion Garcia since a couple of months ago. All the objects that will be exhibited in Gijon from this Thursday are made with Arduino and Processing. I will post more about this art project and the community it aims to be supporting in India after the opening. In the meanwhile, I feel I need to share this with you:

So, how long do you need to solder 192 SMD LEDs? It took me 1h 10m, the soldering wasn’t perfect, but only one of the LEDs wasn’t shinning as it should after I finished. That’s quite an achievement. The code? The magnificent TLC5940 library for Arduino by user acleone (Alex Leone). Thanks! it is a very smooth piece of code. I strongly recommend you using it if you are in the need of a lot of PWM pins.
