This project features smaller projects inside which you may find interesting independently:

Things you need:
  • An Arduino Board. (I used Diecimila model).
  • A LED strip (hundreds in Dealextreme).
  • A transistor (I used a TIP120).
  • A Mac or something running OS X. I used Lion 10.7.2.
  • Optionally, an iPhone, iPad or iWhatever to run the mobile version.

The source code contains:

  • Arduino software. Just upload it to the board.
  • OS X Arduino controller and Bonjour server. Just change your arduino tty file:

    #define kARDUINO_FILE @"/dev/tty.usbserial-A6004l98" and run it.
    
  • iPhone App. Just run it.


Note: This project is made for hacking purposes only and expects a straight forward behavior by the user. It doesn’t take into account exceptional situations and the code may be not be optimized.
