Crazy Carnovsky’s Crazy RGB Wallpaper

Crazy AMAZING, that is.  I take crazy as a compliment, hopefully their studio does too!  The design studio Carnovsky unveiled some amazing RGB designed wallpaper that needs red, blue, and green light (and amazing secondary results!) to reveal the true depth of the work.

Warning:  these images are freaking amazing.  CRAZY amazing.

Thanks, Creative Review!

64 RGB LED Table Project – Wow.

Hacked Gadgets user Edo from Germany made this pretty fantastic RGB LED table using 5mm RGB LEDs and some Arduino microcontrollers.  He has some fading color sequences, some equalizer bar sequences, and perhaps my favorite FX – the table responds to acceleration.  When you tip it one way or another, it responds.  Edo, you officially rock.

Edo speaks on Hacked Gadgets:

“My name is Edo, I am a 23 years old from Hamburg Germany and I’m studying computer science at the Hamburg university of applied science. I used one Arduino Duemilinove to control 12 TLC5940 Chips. There is is one 5mm RGB LED in each of the 64 sections. The dimensions of the Table are 50×50×12 centimeters The cladding is made of self brushed aluminum. In the future I’d like to take an Arduino BT to program the table wirelessly.”

I can’t wait to see what you come up with next, brother.  Check out these videos of Edo’s work – it’s good stuff!

DIY LED Table Ikea Hack

An Ikea hack, now with arduino!

I read about this hack on the Apartment Therapy Unplugged website – it’s an Ikea Granas table with 81 ShiftBrite RGB LED modules under the glass in a matrix.  An arduino chip controls the LEDs and outputs a hue-saturation-value and RGB sine wave.  The project as a whole costs about $350, but what a project!

Here’s the original article – the parts links are above.
