    On the the 25th of November, the soiree pratique team organises a "Build Your Own Ambilight" evening.

    Using a string of 25 indivually addressable RGB LEDs and an Arduino Uno board, we will help you build a simple yet ingenious system to dramatically improve your movie viewing experience!

    Have no idea what Ambilight is? The string of LEDs is attached behind your monitor or TV and lights up according to the content of the screen to "extend" the scene. More at Wikipedia

    Missing to play Snake on your cellphone? Tetris? Space Invaders? Don't worry! Today (18/03/2013, 19h30 @ ESAT 2.58, P&O room) we'll create our own game console with an Arduino!

    We will build an Arduino shield with a cellphone screen, some buttons and a buzzer. Some sample code will get you up & running in no time. This will give you endless possibilities to create your own 8-bit games!

    Registration is required and the parts cost will be max. 15 euro, without the Arduino. A number of Arduino Uno boards will be available, but please bring one if you have one!
