I build a 10 by 20 RGB LED-Table out of an 15€ IKEA table.
It has several effects and you can also play games like Tetris or Snake on it by using an Android App. It uses a Rasperry Pi Zero W under the hood for a WiFi and Bluetooth connection.
By using homeassistant I can now control the table by using "Ok Google, turn Table blue." - that's so strange to say.
All in all it was ~50 hours of soldering/building and ~90 hours of programming
Software of this project is open source but without building instructions.
A few minutes ago i called a local snack bar because i've found a IoT IP Webcam which has access for everyone. I told the boss the situation and now

At the age of 10 I got interest in ''changing computer'' things. I started to watch over the shoulder (I don't know if you can say that in English ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) of my dad. He programmed I2C and other microcontroller.
I started with little batch files and Visual Basic. I think we all know the ''Virus'' with shutdown 😂
At school in the computer lesson we learned a few other languages. I was the only one who learned these languages at home too. The biggest problem is that you think ''I learn at school and at home I can play games''.
Some day I started to learn PHP and Java at home. I came to Java with Minecraft. Yes, Minecraft. You can learn so many things (like the structure of a network packages from the server) and you can visualize everything with blocks.
Since the professional colleague we learn C# and Python which I use in some projects at home too, for example for the rasperrypi.
Now I'm 17 and I can C#, Visual Basic, PHP, JS, Python, JS and HTML1
Anyone have experience with non ARM Single board computers like the LattePanda for a price of around 80$ - 100$? The Board should be a server with a bit more power but it should save electricity. We have already six RPi and two Banana Pis...
The moment when your a AV program hates you!
I send them angry emails a few days ago and now I saw this. Maybe the emails are the reason why? 😂1
