Take a former NSA head hacker, a Raspberry Pi, weird Kiwi radios and what do you get?

I thought that the Raspberry Pi wasn't suitable for driving addressable LED displays - as it is non-deterministic? Arduino controllers are able to be deterministic when driving the critically timed serial data streams.

My display this year had nearly 9000 LEDs. According to the inline power meter it was averaging about 160 watts at 250vac.
