Arduino Christmas Star Project

by sudheeras on Tue Dec 09, 2014 1:44 am

Hi everyone,

This is my very first post in this forum and thought of sharing my Christmas project built with Freetronics Eleven board (Arduino Uno compatible) with the people like me who is playing with Arduino platforms.

The project is a Christmas star with around 1000 10mm bright LEDs, 74HC595 shift registers and TIP122 transistors and took me around 8 months (part time) to build.

Below is the video on Youtube and hope you would enjoy it. (I'm hoping to add more patterns to it later. This is the first version of it)

Thanks,
