Power of Pi

This last summer I worked on a project that turned a Raspberry Pi into a light and music show.

The things you will need are:

Raspberry Pi V3
8 Relay Arduino 5v board
Jumper cables
9 power outlets
THHN wire
power blocks one fore positive and one for negative
FM transmitter
I used python and light show to build my presentation.

Once you get it all wired in you can plug in your lights and action!

Check out my mocked up display.

    There is apparently a bundle to know about this. I think you made some good points in features also.

      It was a fun project, yes there is a plethora of info on this project. Let me know if more of a how-to detail would be helpful. I used this same principal in my lighting control project that is now in full production in my home. http://dakotacole.com/?p=261

      Yea for sure! I have probably a dozen Pi’s around my house doing different things. It’s pretty cool! It’s nice to find a fellow nerd!
