bimlights2 is the continuation of bimlights

Instead of the full tram network, this one only shows a smaller area around the center of Linz. In contrast to its predecessor I wanted to use the WS2812 on the new one. Because it’s quite tricky to precisely position and solder SMD LEDs I decided to design a PCB to get them assembled. Some cardboard is used to adjust an even surface and stick a printed map on to. Packed into a small frame this makes a fancy little gadget, not easily disclosing its internet-conectivity, when turned off.
