ExpeditInvaders Light System
Like many people I own an IKEA Expedit shelf. I added some LED modules behind the shelf, now the shelf looks superb, but look yourself:
Currently ExpeditInvaders support 10 color sets (RGB, Rasta, CGA, Brazil, Fizz, Kitty, Neon, Lantern, Lemming, LeBron) and 6 animation modes (Random, Solid, Ordered, Checkboard, Weird, Weirdtwo).
Best thing yet, you can change the color set or animation mode with a flick of your toes on the PS2 keyboard attached under the bookcase. The keyboard has a special key map installed, if a key on the left side is pressed the color set change, if a key on the right side is pressed the animation will change.
How do I assemble an ExpeditInvaders System? What do I need?
What is additionally required to assemble a StripInvaders System?
- An Arduino Board (doesn’t matter which one, Duemilanove, UNO, Leonardo or a clone)
- 12 Volt power supply – you may use an old ATX Power supply
- LPD6803 Led Modules (I sell some on my Shop)
- Time and patience
- A PS2 Keyboard
- Grab the latest Firmware from my GitHub page
