Project Description

An open-source Lync Christmas Tree Lights project using the Lync 2010 Client API, a FEZ Mini, and Adafruit 12mm Diffused Digital RGB LED Pixels.

Currently Initial 1.0 Release. Everything should work - there may be some scenerios I haven't tested yet.

I'll add some detailed documentation and build instructions in the next few days.

Project Hardware

Adafruit 12mm Diffused Digital RGB LED Pixels
Adafruit Tiny breadboard

This project is a recreation of the project done by Andrej Kyselica, see it here:

This project uses a modified version of Fez Term to communicate with the FEZ Mini.

This project uses this driver for the Adafruit Lights.
