I also hacked my toy train so you can control it to. I have a bit of an explanation on the site and I still have to write a little more code and solder a few more wires but it’s up and running! :)”
What do you get if mix a Rasberry Pi, Arduino, some RGB Pixels and a Christmas Tree??? The xMasPi of course! I have the tree on most nights, so if it’s off come back later
Use the controls below to control the lights and train. Once you take control you only get 1 min before your logged out. Feedback is appreciated and please be patient, the camera feed is pretty slow and the site wont work with Internet Explorer (use Chrome!).
