The CheerLights folks posted about my build, but at the time I hadn’t been able to provide many details, so I wrote up some details…
CheerLights is a fun little project that is powered by ThingSpeak, a service which makes it easy to use Twitter as a control mechanism for the Internet of Things.
Originally I just tossed a few notes up on the Milwaukee Makerspace wiki, but now I’ve got some code on GitHub and a detailed project page for my CheerLight.
Here’s my CheerLight connected to my MacBook Pro, ready to change colors at your command.
(And yes, my project is called "CheerLight" mainly because it consists of just one light. At least that’s the story I’m sticking with.)
