The Particle Photon is making it's way into maker projects all over the world! What an exciting time we live in. The Photon is a very affordable WiFi enabled microcontroller that is perfect for Smart-Home-style devices, and that's exactly what we have seen from maker Here-Be-Dragons.
These LED lamps use individually addressable LED strips, wrapped around some PVC pipe, connected via a Particle Photon to synchronise their color together over WiFi. To select a color, just place your hand on the hammered Copper plates on top of any of the lamps and the LEDs will cycle through their range of colors. Release your hand and the rest of the group will syncronise to match! Pretty awesome if you ask us.
