RGB Accent Lighting with Remote Control

Our good friend Tod Kurt, of ThingM, shows how to control a strip of RGB LEDs using the BlinkM MaxM driver and a FreeM IR remote receiver.

I used some similar strip lighting and a MaxM for a friend’s Halloween costume, and really liked being able to program the blink pattern via Arduino. The addition of an IR remote opens up interesting possibilities.
