Hi, I’m a moderator of the Reddit FastLED users group and former member of VHS (the commute from North Delta was a killer).
Anyways, I was asked to see if there’s any interest in an Arduino workshop with addressable LED’s using the FastLED library. I would also cover sound reactive lighting sequences and have several related Youtube videos (https://www.youtube.com/user/atuline/videos) and github code. So, I thought of a few options to gauge the interest:
- Configuration 1 - ~$40 Arduino Nano with a microphone and 1M of WS2812 LED’s soldered directly to it.
- Configuration 2 - ~$75 A PCB with a Nano, a microphone and an IR sensor as well as 1M of APA102 LED’s.
- Interested but too expensive for me.
- Not interested, thanks.
Note: I have lots of experience with Nano’s, but not enough with ESP8266 to lead a workshop with.
I would be updating this content (that I did with Scouts a few years ago) with a couple of better examples as well as sound reactivity:
@majicj of VHS is willing to ‘bottom line’ this workshop if there is adequate interest.
