A led strip system controlled by your Smartphone or Tablet. Connect StripInvaders to your LAN and enjoy your own Lightshow!
- 15 different Light Modes, more will follow
- Stepless adjust the RGB values
- Stepless adjust the animation speed
- Control StripInvaders wireless with your iPhone/iPad/Android Phone/Android Tablet (OSC)
- Bonjour and mDNS support
- DHCP support
- Configure your strip (connected pins, nr. of leds) without reflashing firmware, use OSC to configure

- Arduino Ethernet
- ws2801 based led strips, I sell some at my shop
- 5v regulated power supply
- Optional: Seeedstudio Grove Base Shield
- Optional: Seeedstudio Grove - Universal 4 Pin Cable
- If you want to use the Grove Base Shield, make sure you need 2x 8-pin Header and 2x 6-pin Header, like the Seeeduino Mega Protoshield Kit

- More effects (Plasma, Fire, Perlin Noise, FFT)
- Improve Audiosync Maybe using a MSGEQ7 (http://nuewire.com/info-archive/msgeq7-by-j-skoba/)
- Reduce OSC Library size
- Gamma correction
- Use ColorSets
- One Firmware for both drivers (WS2801/LPD8806) is not possible, due size limitation.

StripInvaders provide some ready to use OSC GUI's for different OS:
- OSX/WIN Application to configure the PixelController
- PureData OSC Gui, path: OSCGUI/simple.pd (needed to configure the PixelController)
- Control OSC Gui, Android/iOS, path: OSCGUI/si.js
- TouchOSC OSC Gui, iOS, path: OSCGUI/StripInvaders_iPhone.touchosc
- TouchOSC OSC Gui, iOS, path: OSCGUI/StripInvaders_iPad.touchosc
Get TouchOSC from the Apple App Store. You can use TouchOSC Editor or iTunes to copy the iPad or iPhone interface from the
OSCGUI subdirectory. See http://hexler.net/docs/touchosc-editor for more information.
Get it from the Google Play Store. After starting the application press on the + button on top to add the StripInvaders interface. Enter the URL
https://raw.github.com/neophob/StripInvaders/master/OSCGUI/Android-Control-Phone.js for a Phone or
https://raw.github.com/neophob/StripInvaders/master/OSCGUI/Android-Control-Tablet.js for a Tablet, select the StripInvaders from the Destination tab and you're ready to go.
The main issue is the small ROM on arduino (<32kb) when using all libraries. Tested with Arduino v1.0.1. Do not use Arduino v1.0 as there are some nasty UDP errors (duplicate packages).
- Also due to similar memory limitations, you can only vend up to 8 services running on your board. If you want to change this limitation, edit "NumMDNSServiceRecords" in EthernetBonjour.h (but note that the WIZnet chipset on the ethernet shield only supports 4 sockets anyway, one already taken up by the Bonjour library, so 8 services might be way too much anyway. Thus, you could also lower this constant to free up some memory).
-> I use only one service:
#define NumMDNSServiceRecords (1)
