It’s no secret that I love LEDs, so when I saw the Piglow on Adafruit.com, for a relatively cheap price I snatched it right up. And as usual, the same thing happened that always happens after I buy neat looking hardware that doesn’t have a bunch of pre-written software packages out there. I ask myself, “What can I do with this cool stuff?”. The answer this time was, let’s have it monitor and display the functioning of my XBMC. I decided to go all in and develop an XBMC plugin to make it easy for other folks to have the same setup, too!
