Don’t look at me LED jar (VIDEO) #spotify #mmhw #arduino

Marcus Olsson shared his Don’t look at me LED jar @ slickstreamer, named because at full brightness the jar is so bright that audiences have to look away!

For Malmö music hack weekend (MMHW) I decided to hack something with LEDs. I had the idea of building a led wall that reacted on music and showed different animations. So I ordered 4 meters of 144 LED/m led stripes, a PSU to handel the load of 576 LEDs and a Teensy 3.0. Sadly I didn’t finish on time for the presentations and only had the LED wall running a test program to blind the audience with at the end of the hack.
