LightZ is a homemade connected LED strip based on Arduino. Inspired by Philips Ambilight, it can render the light from a computer's screen and sound. This project is a prototype and is not designed to target the general users, however, the source code are available here.
The main features of LightZ are :
- Connection to the LED strip via USB or Bluetooth.
- Possibility to define a manual color.
- Render the sound spectrum.
- Render the monitor borders colors (dynamically depending of the number of LEDs and the LED strip position behind the monitor).
Special thank to S�bastien WARIN who inspired me to make this project.
