Over at NYC Resistor, Trammell and Adam decided to upgrade the space with some ambient lighting, controlled by their hexascroller display via a Teensy. Trammell writes:
Adam and I upgraded Hexascroller to control 5 m of Adafruit RGB LED strip through a spare serial port connected to a Teensy 2.0 that drives the strip via SPI. Now when a new message is displayed, the accent lights switch to a bright flashing mode to attract attention, then they will return to soothing, slow color changing mode.
Nice work, guys!
