TV Ambient Light with Raspberry Pi and Hyperion (HOW-TO) #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Ambient light really increases the impact of your movie or tv viewing experience. This project from KPeyanski on YouTube shows you how to create your own setup with a Pi.
We are going to DYI TV Ambient Lighting using #RaspberryPi, #Hyperion software and some #LED Strips. Meaning there will be colors behind you TV that will be in sync to the currently displayed image, bringing watching TV experience to whole another level.
In general you have three options to achieve TV ambient lighting: to buy a TV that have this feature by default, to buy a kit that could be both expensive and not good, or to do it yourself. I will guide you step-by-step to do it yourself and I will start with the list of what is needed for this project.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
