Here is a simple (as in easy) project for this Halloween (or any other holiday for that matter).
So what is Cheerlights?
Taken from the website:
"CheerLights is an “Internet of Things” project created by Hans Scharler that allows people’s lights all across the world to synchronize to one color set by Twitter. This is a way to connect physical things with social networking experiences."
About this project:
Each year I try to make something to display cheerlights color. I use to make things using RGB LEDs, lots of wire, and time to wire things up. A few years ago I discovered "Neopixel" strips - Neopixels are a Adafruit brand, just about any WS2812/WS2811 strip or ring should work for this project. Neopixels are individually addressable RGB LEDs that come in various size "pixels". Anywhere from one to 60.
