liightbrush – 0% photoshop

Painting with LEDs and a wiimote

Version 2

leave a comment »

Took me quite some time, but here is at last v2 of the liightbrush. There are the main improvements:

  • LEDs using the newer LPD8806 chips allowing built in handling of a much wider scope of colors
  • 2 meters long, with 64 LEDs (instead of 8 previously)
  • Wireless bluetooth for serial input
  • Built in IR emiters powerd through the Arduino (ripped from a Nintendo Wii sensor bar)
  • Much optimized Arduino code
  • Foldable aluminium design for easy transportation of the Liightbrush
  • But it is still not over yet as I still need:

  • To power the device without relying on the USB chord (which kinds of defeat the whole bluetooth work)
  • To find a proper material to scatter the LED lights, that are a bit too bright
