Realising that and already owning a decent smart TV, Jimmy White decided to make his own light setup using a Raspberry Pi 3, a USB camera, and some LED strips. He wanted to produce a bias lighting effect that took into account whatever he was watching or playing, adjusting the colour of the lighting to match the screen. “I was inspired by the standalone ambient light offerings I have seen on the market, but they all required the ‘source’ to be external to the TV, which did not meet my requirements,” he says.
