Following on from the project we featured last week that used the affordable £9 IKEA coffee table to create an awesome Raspberry Pi powered retro arcade table. A new Arduino project uses the sam style of IKEA table to create a music visualiser.
Check out the video below to see the Arduino music visualiser IKEA coffee tablet in action, its designer explain more about its inspiration and construction.
It’s based on the Tiny Music Visualizer project from Adafruit, using their I2C multiplexer board for a tiny 8×8 bicolor LED matrix. The Arduino code is from there, the circuit is from there — all I really created was a big handmade LED matrix, and put it into an IKEA table!
Plug its USB cable into a phone charger or any USB port, then crank up the tunes and enjoy watching the giant tricolor pixels dance like splashing fountains of spectrum analyzer goodness!
Full instructions on how to create your very own are now available via the MAKE website, via the link below.
