Multi outlet surge protectors
With enough outlets to plug in the 16 power supplies
×1
Clothes Rack
This rack is easy to set up and tear down, so it ships and stores compactly. It is also sturdy enough to easily handle the weight of the curtain and LEDs.
×1
Bamboo Curtain
Provides a good balance between weight, being easy to attach to the clothes rack, being easy to collapse, and blocking light (which helps the LED picture show more clearly)
×1
Zip Ties/Shower curtain hooks
Something to hang the curtain on the clothes rack, and secure the LED strips to the curtain. We opted for shower curtain hooks to secure the curtain, as they are a little easier to slip on, and are reusable. We used zip ties for the LED strips, as they just need attached once.

Requires Bluetooth and a camera. Works on either mobile or desktop platforms.
