Enchant your nerdiest houseguests with this beautifully modern piece of DIY tech art. The colourBoard does so much more than traditional ornaments, adding a geeky design touch to any surface, with the bonus of you being able to excalim: “I built that”!
Featuring a grid of 100 high-quality RGB or white-blue LEDs, the colourBoard is capable of creating beautiful interior light shows – with two different pattern options available. Experience the ever-relaxing smooth colour change mode, or lose yourself in the captivating analogue randomness of blinking LEDs – watch as they slowly drift into and out of sync in a gloriously chaotic pattern!
The colourBoard comes as a DIY kit, with the LEDs of your choice included, and is also possible to buy as a PCB alone. Add your favourite 5mm LEDs in the colours you love, or create a pattern with completely different colours! This project is a great way to practice your soldering skills and while away an afternoon on an outstanding optical object that will look great wherever you decide to place it.
