The LED Evolution!

Addressable LEDs are a low profile lighting solution that can be used for partying or productivity. Join Dr. D-Flo and his team as they demonstrate how to setup and program addressable LEDs for:

  • Lighting effects synced to music
  • Weather notifications
  • A light intensity alarm clock
  • A power hour timer
  • A color wheel drinking Game

As described in the overview video, Dr. D-Flo provides tutorials on two separate builds:

The Arduino Build

The Arduino build provides advanced lighting effects quickly (< 2 hours). This build comes with code that is ready to go. 

Robust J-Design Build

Unlike the Arduino build, the J-Design is scale-able, meaning it is capable of running thousands of LEDs without discoloration or electromagnetic interference. This build requires more time and the willingness to learn about surface mount technology and Python. 

Thanks!
