Holiday Light Display #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

From Radio World via raspberry pi pod:

Thirty-two boxes of Christmas lights, two solid-state relay boards, two IC inverters and one Raspberry Pi: These components were stacked precariously on my desk early in my internship at iHeartMedia Toledo.

My task, according to Market Director of Engineering and IT Gary Fullhart, was to create a holiday light show that synced to our Christmas music station, WRVF(FM), “101.5 The River.”

After researching and testing, I found the assignment exciting to build.

For this project, the Raspberry Pi runs open source software called LightShow Pi. The program takes audio and breaks it across light channels, similar to a light organ. Utilizing the Raspberry Pi Model 2B, a maximum of eight GPIO pins create the light channels.
