Totally Lit – Programmable RGB LED Acrylic Sign

https://youtu.be/AcvpgUQGPn4 Been playing around with the laser cutter/engraver, and really fell in love with engraving in to clear acrylic and shining a light source from the edge. The thickness of the acrylic being used is a .25" sheet, which cuts really cleanly by the laser cutter/engraver (the one that I had access to is the Trotec 300). Started off with a simple OPEN sign with a single light colour sou ...

SLEEK, SOPHISTICATED SKITTLE SORTER

Sorting candy by color is a classic problem that has its roots in the contract riders of rock stars who were just trying to make sure that more important contractual obligations were not being overlooked by concert venues. Through the years, candy sorting has become a classic problem for hobbyists to solve in various ways. After a false start a few years back, [little french kev] was compelled to dust off t ...

HOW-TO: Music Reactive Desk Light

Hi! In this build we’ll make a good looking light that dances to all sounds and music, using simple components and some basic Arduino programming. It makes an awesome effect while standing on the desk when gaming, playing music, and anything else that makes sound really. Let’s get going! (Click here to download schematic) STEP 1: MAIN SUPPLIES First things first: what kind of supplies do we need and what do ...

RGB LED Cube with Sound to Light Capabilities

The objective of our final project was to build a 5x5x5 RGB LED cube that can display a certain color depending on the frequency of music playing. There are two main components of this project. [gallery columns="2" size="medium" ids="31240,31241"] The first part is the hardware setup that consists of the LED cube and the circuits that drive the power for each LED which is controlled through an Arduino Uno m ...

RGB LED Strip Clock

For the final project we made an analog style clock with an Arduino microcontroller. To do this we used three major components: an RGB LED Strip, a DeadOn RTC, and a custom user interface. The LED strip is used to set the display around the clock. The DeadOn RTC is used to keep time independent of the microcontroller and communicates using SPI. The custom user interface allows the user to make various selec ...

RGB LED Grid

This project involved creating a red, blue, green (RGB) light emitting diode (LED) matrix that displayed the colors of the rainbow. The colors of the rainbow were chosen to show the full color spectrum that the LEDs are capable of, while still giving distinct variation within the LED matrix. [gallery size="medium" ids="31125,31124,31123"] In this project, each diagonal of the LED grid is a different color o ...

Plant Moisture Monitoring and Watering with LED Indicator

Monitor your plants and let them water themselves when they are thirsty. Story Motivation I work in a rather 'sterile' office, that was once a server room with raised floors. After several years working in there, I got tired of no windows, no outside light, and NO GREEN things, and decided to bring in one of my many plants, from home, in an attempt to bring a little 'green' inside. I brought the plant in an ...

3D-Printed RGB Wallet

Stand out from the crowd with this unabashedly ostentatious excuse for a wallet. It's got plenty of space, RGB lights, and you can even put your name on it for added vanity. Interested? Keep reading! In the files section of this build you can find two things: a Fusion archive and some STL files. If you're just interested in printing a blank wallet without any text on it then download the STL files. Load the ...

Controlling RGB LED using Arduino and Wi-Fi

In last tutorial, we explained controlling a Robot using Wi-Fi and Arduino, and in this article we are with our next IOT Based Project- RGB LED Flasher using Wi-Fi. Here we have used Arduino and ESP8266 Wi-Fi Module to control the colors of RGB LED, through a Android Phone, over the Wi-Fi. In this RGB Flasher LED, we have used an Android Mobile App named “Blynk”. Blynk is a very compatible app with Arduino, ...

RGB LED with Arduino

In this project we are going to interface 5 RGB (Red Green Blue) LEDs to Arduino Uno. These LEDs are connected in parallel for reducing PIN usage of Uno.  The RGB LED will have four pins as shown in figure. PIN1: Color 1 negative terminal or color 1 positive terminal PIN2: Common positive for all three colors or common negative for all three colors PIN3: Color 2 negative terminal or color 2 positive termina ...

Volcom RGB Desktop Light Box

Greetings! I'm Russell Petersen. I'm an engineer, inventor, designer, fabricator, and dreamer. I'm a junior Electrical Engineer by trade, located and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. I love playing with Solid State Lighting, and came up with this idea one night. Simply stated, It's a custom built light box with a logo adhered to the front, and lit by a RGB LED module. This project is easily adaptable ...
