Ein Vortrag von Mitch Altman auf der GPN20.

LED strips have become really inexpensive. Lots of people have created inexpensive methods of controlling their color and brightness. This workshop shows one way to control LED strips, and to make them do what you want. We will use a very inexpensive Arduino clone. I'll show you everything you need to know to use existing programs -- as-is, or to hack on -- to control the colors in your world with LED strips.

This workshop is for total beginners.
