From the Forums – 1000 x 10mm LED Arduino Christmas Star Project! #arduino

sudheeras shared an Arduino Christmas Star Project on the Adafruit Forums:

This is my very first post in this forum and thought of sharing my Christmas project built with Freetronics Eleven board (Arduino Uno compatible) with the people like me who is playing with Arduino platforms.

The project is a Christmas star with around 1000 10mm bright LEDs, 74HC595 shift registers and TIP122 transistors and took me around 8 months (part time) to build.

[Above] is the video on Youtube and hope you would enjoy it. (I’m hoping to add more patterns to it later. This is the first version of it)

From the video description:

This is my 2014 Xmas project, which is dedicated to my little son, daughter and all other kids in my neighborhood. The project is a combination of Freetronics Eleven board, 74HC595 shift registers and TIP122 transistors together with my childhood hobby(Electronics), academics(Mathematics) and the profession(Software design/development).
