Hallo Eva!

Hast am Wochenende nix besseres zu tun? 🙂

Introducing: pentabox.

A small project i built in 3 hours from emptying generic crap out of 5 generic Ikea boxes (“Samla”) to soldering, wiring everything up and wrapping all the cables in transparent tape to coding a small demo.

The installation is powered by an Arduino Duemilanove development board. The code was written in Standard C and compiled under Ubuntu GNU/Linux. It runs autonomously using a 5V power supply, consuming an estimated 5 watts with all LEDs lit constantly.

Coming up next: Wiring up a cheap microphone or a headphone plug to the Arduinos analog input for sound control (VU-meter style)!

Here’s a second demo i shot, introducing smooth fading starting at 01:25 minutes:

Facebook vs. Lynx

Lynx 1, Facebook 0. We’re not cool enough to support your browser sagen sie. Wahrscheinlich waren da Apple-Fanboys am Werk. Mal sehen ob’s nicht doch geht wenn ich den User Agent verbiege :3
