Bloomie-The Interactive Flowers
Hey! I really like this project and am getting ready to build it myself. I was curious how you decided to power the arduino? Did you hook it up to the 12vdc side of the converter or did you run a separate power supply for both the arduino and the converter? Also, I'm assuming this design could be expanded to use 6 nixie tubes instead of 4 right? Thanks again!
It doesn't! I've had mine for several months now and it's held its awesomeness very well!
Looks good!How were you able to change the colors without the bluetooth adapter? I can't seem to change anything.
I got the clock to work, however I cannot seem to figure out how to change the colors or the interval for rainbow mode. I opted out of the bluetooth adapter, so I need a way to do it without that. I have FastLED 3.1 and Arduino 1.8.1.Any suggestions?
Yea! I made a similar connection as well. I remember seeing a weather chain at some point too!
Yea, I've seen a couple builds where people use vodka instead of ethanol, and as far as I know it works just as well. I think some people ended up changing the chemical amounts when they use vodka, but I'm not sure. Would be something interesting to experiment with!
Thanks! I'm glad you like it!
