To be honest, we didn't design the Pulsar with a specific use in mind. We simply wanted a way to include multi-colored lights in our projects without too much hassle, and be able to control them wirelessly.
To give you a taste for what we've built so far, here are a few examples:
Iron Man Costume
From Comic-Con to Maker Faire, the Pulsar allows us to build costumes of varying degrees of complexity. An Iron Man t-shirt works great when you're in a pinch for a costume party!
The Pulsar also makes a great addition to our 3d-printed repulsor arm! Check out the CAD model files courtesy of our neighbors at @Deezmaker!
International Space Station (ISS) Monitor
In collaboration with the creator of ISS Above (@Liam Kennedy), we developed custom firmware so that the Pulsar would display a countdown until the next pass of the ISS using beautiful LED animations!
The data are loaded wirelessly onto the Pulsar from a Raspberry Pi equipped with a USB Bluetooth LED adapter!
3D-Printed Night Lamp
In collaboration with our awesome neighbors over at @Deezmaker 3D-Printers we developed a 3d-printed night lamp that can be programmed as a soundless alarm clock from any bluetooth-capable device!
We're excited to see what you'll create using this neat little device!
