Executive Summary

Picture that summarizes the project.

Using the Beagle Bone we are bouncing and changing the brightness and color of a LED strip that is also attached to the Bone. We are then encasing this system in a physical system of mirrors to create a optical illusion that makes it appear the moving lights go on forever. We are very early on in this project still, as we are still gathering the physical parts needed to construct it. We have found a dedicated library for the LED strips as well.

Packaging

8 sections of plexiglass, 5m strip of LEDS, adhesive

Installation Instructions

Run "git clone https://github.com/mossac/InfMirror.git" in your command line to import the software needed to run the project

User Instructions

Simply run "python3 main.py" in the directory you downloaded to run the program.

Highlights

Theory of Operation

Work Breakdown

Tyler:

Hardware assembly - Nov 12th
Circuit analysis on the system - TBD

Aidan:

LED library integration - Nov 5th

Future Work

Add a microphone input to the system to change the leds based off music played around it.

Conclusions

Fun project that we will be using later on as a totem at music festivals or just as a cool decoration item to use in our rooms. Has its own unique challenges but its also very expandable as you could add control from your phone, or a microphone input or sever different types of light shows.
