Hack The VU
You've all noticed the giant VU Meter on the BinaryVoice FM Tower. As discussed in Projects:VUMeter it shows the audio level of the BinaryVoice FM radio station.
But it also has a network interface to control the LEDs !
You can control it over UDP via 188.8.131.52 on port 555
It has 80 LEDs of which you can set the RGB color value.
Send the following message: SET:XX:RR:GG:BB to UDP port 555
- XX: the led number (from 0 to 79, bottom to top)
- RR: the HEX RED color value
- GG: the HEX GREEN color value
- BB: the HEX BLUE color value
echo SET:39:FF:FF:FF | socat -t 0 - UDP:184.108.40.206:555
will set the middle led to white
Please be gentle since it is only an Arduino Uno on a small network shield. :-)
After 10 seconds of silence the tower will return to normal VU meter operation
