Using the #raspi, Graham from xmas4all.co.uk created a bookshelf with accent lighting. The color is tuned into the CheerLights feed and the results are a year-round display of the CheerLights color (colour that is…). The Project is built around a Raspberry Pi, Arduino Uno, 3 HEXFET mosfets and 5 meters of RGB 5050 LED colour ribbon.

CheerLights Christmas Tree Topper #arduino #ethernet
[Paul Gorman] decided to mod his Christmas tree topper. He added an RGB LED to illuminate his star on top of his Christmas tree. The color that is glows is the latest CheerLights color. The wise men could have used this on their journey.
LED Holiday Wreath Connected to CheerLights [video]
[Dennis Adams] built a holiday wreath that displays animated color patterns and the latest CheerLights color. The build steps are on Sector67 with photos - it was great to see parts of the process and see the wreath come to life. The parts include addressable RGB Strip LEDs from Cool Neon (TCLPXL50), an Arduino, an Internet Gateway (laptop), and Ping-Pong balls!
CheerLights Client for Commodore 64 #C64
I am absolutely loving this implementation of CheerLights. Thanks for bringing back some great memories. The C64 CheerLights logo has filled me with Christmas cheer!
CheerLights Nominated for Best DIY Internet of Things Project #IoT
The folks here at ioBridge Labs is really honored to have CheerLights be nominated by Postscapes for the Best DIY Internet of Things Project of 2012 - we didn’t even have to nominate ourselves, which makes it even sweeter! We are thankful to be included with many fine projects. We happen to think CheerLights is a shining example of the Internet of Things. CheerLights is a global network of socially connected lights. This ties a lot of technology together and at the end, it’s simple way to show that we are all connected.
If you would like to vote for CheerLights, you have a few days to go here and vote. Voting takes a few seconds, no registration is required. While you are there, check out the other projects and maybe you’ll be inspired to create next year’s big project.
