This DIY will let you have a Christmas Star Light, with a twist. It is GSM controlled and changes patterns, colours and frequency according to the text messages. The inventor likes to call it, ‘interactive tradition’, we think it’s quite apt. Here’s a list of the main components you’ll need for this DIY:
Intel Galileo Gen 2
Arduino Prototype Shield
The rest, you can read about on the blog, like flexible LED strips. The LEDs are connected are not individually addressed, so that makes it simpler. You might be needing an external power source to support the LEDs. You can check the datasheet of the LEDs to decide. You need the GSM shield to connect the Arduino to the mobile network, for simple communication.
You can get detailed steps along with pictorial instructions in the blog given below. And the code too!
Follow these steps and have an amazing GSM controlled light. You can make a discoball and convert your living room into a disc, in no time!
