LED-RGB Controller




This is my homemade RGB-LED controller.

It is connected to the PC which lets me either change the color by hand, or the color changes to the music, or its like ambilight, the LEDs have the main color of my screen.
unfortunately the colors are not that vivid in the video. They are alot brighter in real life.

I will post a complete instructable when I have some more time.
for now more info can be found on www.ledcontroller.de.vu

    Your website is down again. I'm thinking of doing this as my degree work for school and it would help if the site is up. :)

    Btw, is it possible to do this with USB instead of RS232?

    Thanks in advance!

    No. Because the degree work would come from modifying my computer.

    I was supposed to carve some cool design to acrylic glass, placing it to the side of my computer and lighting it, with the led controller. And also carving the circuit board was supposed to be part of the degree work.

    I also got a controller working that converts serial bytes into PWM output on 3 channels, but I don't have a power driver stage yet (I don't have beefy transistors yet) and have a power supply out of an old computer that I'm using that should be good for expanding.
