I have been always amazed by Philips Ambilight TV. Unfortunately they were pretty expensive, and this is why I have looked for an easy cheap solution to be able to create the same user experience. This was my first Raspberry Pi project, and it’s pretty simple and good for beginners. Everything is based on different materials I have found online, especially with the help of the guys of the raspbmc project (today OSMC).
Sit tight, read carefully, and prepare yourself for one of the greatest TV hacks exists 🙂
