Light Painting Machine #arttuesday

Conways game of life light painting1

This light painting machine lets you light paint from a remote location! All you need is an internet connection. From embedded aesthetics.

This “thing” is a machine that allows anyone, anywhere to light paint. It works like this (see image below for reference):

You submit an image file (jpg, png, etc.) to our Interactive webpage

Our website takes your submitted photo and saves it

Your photo then travels through the Interwebs to our local light painting machine

The brains of our light painting machine, a microcontroller called the Parallax Propeller (similar to Arduino), receives information about the photo

The Propeller then choreographs motor movement, DSLR camera triggering, and LED pattern timing

A light-painted photo of your submitted image is then uploaded to our website, and delivered back to you for you to enjoy

Motivation

We wanted to give the awesomeness of light painting to everyone (*who has some Internet

We hoped that having the ability to automate light painting would allow us to push light painting to places it hasn’t been

We thought that our last project, the LED Paint Brush, was really fun so we wanted to see what other ways we could use light painting
Because it’s flippin’ sweet
