Beautiful build from Alison Murray on YouTube:
This is a demo of a cloud lamp which responds to loud noises by flashing like lightning that I made in 4 hrs using this tutorial: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/build-cl…
However, I made some modifications to the design as a way to make it work with the resources I had access to and to make the project easier. So here is my tutorial: https://www.instructables.com/id/Soun…
Here is the video I used to demo the cloud: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDq6T…
Featured Adafruit Product!
Adafruit NeoPixel Digital RGB LED Strip – Black 30 LED – BLACK: You thought it couldn’t get better than our world-famous 32-LED-per-meter Digital LED strip but we will prove you wrong! These NeoPixel strips have 30 digitally-addressable pixel LEDs per meter and are very affordable and are only 12.5 mm wide, 10 mm if you remove the strip from the casing. This is the strip with black flex PCB, its identical to the white 30 LED/meter except it has a different color mask on the flex strip. (read more)
Adafruit NeoPixel Digital RGB LED Strip – White 60 LED – WHITE: You thought it couldn’t get better than our world-famous 32-LED-per-meter Digital LED strip but we will prove you wrong! You wanted twice the LEDs? We got it (well, its 1.875 times as many but that’s within a margin of error). You wanted thinner strips? Now only 12.5 mm wide, 10 mm if you remove the strip from the casing. You wanted less noticeable strip color – this strip has white-colored flex PCB, which will be less visible against white-painted walls. This is the strip with white flex PCB, its identical to the black 60 LED/meter except it has a different color mask on the flex strip. (read more)
