Ambient light control based on colour of computer screen
Well, it works nice, but there were small issue with function.
My girlfriend doesn't like flickering it made when there were some fast colour change on screen. So I turned it off after twenty minutes of movie.
Solution I made is quite simple. Just get rid of flickering using simple averaging from previous colours, so colour and brightness doesn't change that fast.
