Making art! Umbrella with RGB leds

Posted by Rudi on lørdag jan 18, 2014 Under Electronics

This was actually a project I have been talking about making for a long time. The first idea was to use low cost RGB leds and PWM controllers, but this would take too much time to solder together, so it was decided to make a prototype using RGB LED chains with build in WS2811 controller instead.

Below is a video of the umbrella in action. (Sorry for the poor quality)

The project is based on arduino and software from so the light patterns are designed for a circular LED chain setup, but it looks fairly nice on the umbrella too :)

Future plans for features have already been made!
