I am using Arduino and Async's WiShield to grab RGB color codes from a website, and then light up my single red, green, and blue LED on the Arduino. Everything works great thanks to some awesomely helpful people on this forum. Now, I am at the point where I just want to MAGNIFY the brightness from the Arduino board, so that instead of just 1 red, 1 green, and 1 blue LED, I want to quintuple the brightness. How do I do this? What is the best way?
Do I get 5 reds, 5 greens, and 5 blue LEDs and wire them together? If so, how do I do this considering that my WiShield might be subject to the following pin limitations: http://shieldlist.org/asynclabs/wishield-v2
Currently, I am using pins 3,5, and 6, for red, green, and blue. Any guidance on how I can quintuple the brightness would be greatly appreciated. I will encase my Arduino in a frosted glass orb from IKEA later...so any tips on diffusion for a "solid color" look would also be appreciated once I successfully quintuple the brightness. Thank you Arduino Forum!
