I'm a complete beginner so please bear with me on any errors I may make.
I'm creating a 'mood room' for a university project that, amongst other things, will be taking an audio input and handling data using MAX/MSP to then output commands that will operate infra-red controlled lights (Auraglow
) and a motor-powered kaleidoscope.
Arduino was the first idea that came to me when I was thinking about how to do this. Let me show you what I've found so far...Motor Shield
(This indicates a UNO board would work), so...Arduino UNO
I've also found this Infra-red Shield
Do these seem like they would do what I'm after? Any alternatives?
I'm thinking I may have a problem with the infra-red idea as I need to alter each bulb independently so perhaps I'll need a second or even third Infra-red shield (if I go that far!).
Any and all advice/opinions welcome; thanks for reading.
