Rack Lights

by kapplegate on Wed Jan 18, 2012 10:34 pm

I used a digitally addressable light strips from Lady Ada and an Arduino Mega for this fun project last October that I thought I would share. I'm looking forward to adding some more of the features I mentioned in the video. I'd love some feedback. Thanks.

Great work, though it seems you have a little bit of some code error. stop the video at about 1:00 exactly. Look at the bottom of the far green LED's some are lit up that are red/yellow.

Beautiful work! Any chance on releasing some open source code?

Great project! Great use for these awesome strips. I love blinky things, but I also love me some functionality. ;)

Nice combination of esthetics and utility!
Except for the use of Juniper networking gear :-(
