Being such a fan of DIY Internet Of Things, I’m looking frontwards to trying out the visually creative purpose of LED strip lighting as well as how it tin live on used for DIY LED projects every bit good every bit IoT projects!
The led strip that I conduct maintain alongside me today is called BlinkyTape, which is a fun as well as glowy meter-long full-color low-cal strip consisting of threescore independent RGB LEDs controlled past times a custom low-cal processor board. BlinkyTape comes alongside a built-in micro-USB connecter as well as it is enclosed within a flexible as well as weatherproof silicone protective covering. The BlinkyTape low-cal strip is powered via USB as well as the brightness as well as effects are controlled via a tiny on-board switch.
With the BlinkyTape you lot tin conduct maintain it alongside you lot on the become (with the purpose of USB battery pack) as well as you lot tin custom brand your ain low-cal patterns as well as store/save them direct on the BlinkyTape low-cal strip for playback away from the computer. Also, you lot tin fix the color of each LED’s red, light-green as well as bluish as well as command each LED individually, which is pretty cool!
The low-cal patterns as well as animations are created as well as edited inwards real-time using BlinkyTape’s PatternPaint or AmbiTape software, though you lot tin too purpose costless programming environments such every bit Processing, Python or Arduino since the BlinkyTape uses the same ATMEGA32u4 processor used inwards the Arduino Leonardo development board.
