DIY Ambient Lighting with Hyperion. Works with HDMI/AV Sources || Raspberry Pi

This is an expansion of my previous Ambient Lighting build. Take a look at it first: http://www.instructables.com/id/Build-your-own-Amb… This time I will add a new function to my DIY Ambient Lighting. Until now It only works with the Raspbmc software. That means that I can not add Ambient Lighting to my PS3 or cable TV. That …

Lighting an LED using a Breadboard & a Raspberry Pi

Lights, Jumpers & the Resistance – Jumper wires are typically 22 gauge solid-core wires with insulation pre-stripped and readied for insertion in or out. Resistors resist the flow of electrical current, thereby controlling WHERE and HOW FAST it flows. [Thought experiment: If controlling water, using thin pipes would let less water through but would flow …

Plessey prepares for LED lighting push

Plessey Semiconductor seems to be gearing up for increased production of its GaN-on-silicon LED devices. Plymouth-based Plessey has upgraded its production facility by buying the latest Temescal UEFC-4900 material deposition system from Ferrotec. Plessey manufactures LEDs on 6-inch wafers using a GaN-on-silicon process which it claims is cost-effective because it uses standard semiconductor manufacturing techniques. …

Detecting Lightning with a Raspberry Pi

rious methods can be used to detect lightning. Commonly it involves sensing the electromagnetic radiation generated by a strike. Most people have probably heard this at some point as static, crackles, and popping sounds on an AM radio. Some detectors are capable of picking up the flashes of light produced within a cloud, even during the day when …
