This is an RGB led strip that is controlled by the Frequencies of music. This has done before but I believe this is the most successful version I have seen. This is done by using an Arduino and the spectrum shield. the basic idea is the shield splits the music into & different bands of frequency and than is analyzed by the code. once analyzed the lights know what color to display and how bright.
Step 1: Gather Parts
3 MOSFET transistors
3 10k resistors
12v dc power supply
RGB light strip
2 1/8 inch aux cords
Step 2: Wire and Solder on Shield
Here is the schematic
Step 3: Write Code
The code will be publicly available after the contest. Much of it is up to how you want the lights to act.
Step 4: Step Up
Plug everything in and have fun!
Here is a video of my lights in my room to see what you will be building.
