Hello, everyone! My name is Jacob Bates, and I have been hearing about Familab for a long time before finally going there a couple of weeks ago with my friend and coworker, Shea Silverman. My interests are all over the place, but this project might give you an idea:
Shea and I decided to create a "Red Alert" system for our office during our semesterly "Hack Day". It consists of an RGB LED strip, a Teensy 2.0, and a Raspberry Pi. The RPi sends serial commands to the Arduino telling it whether to pulse or display a constant color, as well as the desired color value. It also hosts an HTTP server where Shea made the LCARS-styled webpage for selecting the different modes. We plan on wiring both sides of the room, so we'll add another Arduino and another strip of LEDs later.
Here's a video of it in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WMVx6Q9_8U
