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.
