Garland with a heart on February 14
Soon, February 14, Valentine's Day, a Christmas garland is still hanging on the window with address LEDs, and I decided to diversify it a bit. I wrote a simple script and added a colorful heart to the firmware.
There was already a post and video about this garland , it works on Arduino with Alex Guyver firmware. I did not write something of my own, just supplemented the firmware with my new effect.
Watch the video, there is instructions on how to do this, the archive with my firmware can be downloaded from the link.
From the street, the heart looks generally awesome! :)
I need a tachometer to calculate some mechanisms. For example, to calculate the speed of a robot vacuum cleaner, you need to know the rotation speed of the electric motor and, based on this, calculate the gear ratio of the gearbox.
This cool garland is assembled according to the design of Alex Hyvera using Arduino and an address LED strip. The garland has many interesting effects, a running text, several games and the ability to control all this from a mobile phone.
A beautiful, voluminous heart of paper can be glued together in a couple of hours.
It has long been stored on the computer three photos of the vase, once found on the Internet.
This article is about how I collect my robot vacuum cleaner. There are a lot of photos and videos for those who also have such an idea.
