I am making an integrated safelight/timer console, which will have a countdown timer with three preset timer options, and an enlarger switch for controlling that when I need to.
Neopixels? Overkill? Mais oui! But I have some left over from an old project, so I may as well use them for something.
I'm envisaging quite a custom light setup, with some lights underneath the worktop as well as along the back edge. You generally need to keep them low and dim around paper, despite its orthocromaticity.
I've bought bits from The Pi Hut, so hopefully that's all I need. So far the total is around £30.
