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.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
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.
