Introduction: Arduino Powered Light Show!

Picture of Arduino Powered Light Show!

well, alot of work went into developing the software that drives this whole light show but the hardware is just a arduino hooked up to the sain smart 8 channel relay controller. but im very pleased with how it all came out, also expect for my software that allows this to be done easily, published here in a couple of days EDIT: software is now available for download!!!

Are you still planning to release the software to control the lights? That would be awesome if you could.

hey i uploaded the software if your curious

yea, the netbook i wrote it on went belly up, so i gotta do some data recovery before that happens

Very interested in this project, I am ordering my Sainsmart board. Any idea when you will get the software side of things uploaded?

Thanks for the tip on the sain smart relay board. I was going to build a board as described in several other instructibles but I couldn't build it for less than a sain smart board costs

yeah they are pretty fantastic, its cheaper than just buying the relays alone. in matter of fact they produce a board with a built in usb interface now so basically its my entire project here minus the software and enclosure and outlets
