Ardunio Christmas Lights UPDATE - WS2811 / Arduino Mega2560

I have been working non stop on the code ready to be released, I have been able to optimise and improve efficiency and allowed me to get it ready for further features.

"Public Release 'falalalalala' (Mega 2560) v1.0b" is in its final testing and will be released shortly with a new demo video on youtube to come shortly.

Current features include in first release (Public Release 'falalalalala' (Mega 2560) v1.0b) :-

  • Customised effects.
  • Colour selections.
  • Consistent and time accurate effects for smoother playback at 20 frames per second.
  • Auto-save feature to update automatically when a user changes settings.
  • 128x32 OLED display.
  • 3 button interface.
  • Stack based effects tree (this is to get ready for further expansion)
Features coming :-

  • SD card access.
  • Scripting language.
  • Playback of text written effects.
  • Audio interaction and playback.
  • Custom effects created on board via stack.
I appreciate your time and patience as I wish to give everyone a magical experience and many happy Christmas trees and smiling faces.

Ardunio Christmas Lights Preview - WS2811 / Arduino Mega2560

Preview of some of the effects I have programmed to run in real time on an Arduino Mega2560 that is displayed every Christmas outside my house. More effects are added during the years with more and more lights. The intention is to create a Christmas feeling where by it looks magical and not cheep and tacky.

The full setup runs 4 channels of 200 leds and are processed with in an effects stack, individually and grouped in to sets and can apply different effects per frame.

A cut down version (Source Code) running one channel of of lights on an Arduino Nano will be available at a later date.

Christmas Tree LED Pixel - WS2811 / T-1000S / Arduino Nano

I decided in 2015 to develop a few light effects for my outside Christmas Tree running on a T-1000S controller with WS2811 pixel leds. I wanted to produce some effects that were more pretty and less tacky and these were the result of a few evenings work.

The tree was setup on a 5ft tree using 150 leds. This version is no longer used since I have no moved to using an Arduino Nano v3 allowing me to generate more effects dynamically in realtime with 400 or less pixel leds @ 20fps. The Arduino source code will hopefully be shared soon.

I have decided to share the source files for the T-1000S. These are limited to the WS2811 based string lights with a maximum of 256 leds connected running @ 20fps.

Please give credit where you use these light effects.
