I Let Everyone on the Internet Control My X-Mas Decoration @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi


via hackster.io

Control any of the 55 RGB LEDs on the tree, let Santa twerk for you, control a model railroad, or display custom text on a LED dot matrix.

I had the idea quite a while ago, since I always loved projects where you could control somebody’s X-mas lighting, a robot arm or generally anything over the web and watching it live on stream. But I was never really sure, if there’s anyone else in the world who would dig it and I had no idea how to get requests from anyone on the internet to my Arduino.

Then one day – a few weeks ago – I told a friend what I had in mind and surprisingly he was immediately into it. He’s a computer scientist and said he could program an API on node.js, which would run on a Raspberry Pi. The concept was born.
