I recently picked up one of Adafruit’s new HUZZAH32 Feather development boards, without having a clear project in mind for it. However after browsing the Adafruit forums, I stumbled across someone who was making a sort of status screen for their office, and I thought I would try that out.

The basic idea is to have a little box with an LCD screen on it which would display my current status. Like, if I’m in a meeting, at lunch, or home sick.

BlinkenLights!

We recently took the plunge and got a bunch of HomeKit enabled light switches for our house. After that we got a string of the Hue Lightstrips for pretty multi-colored lights! After looking at the Hue strip, I thought that would be a cool project to build your own version. It also gave me an excuse to play with some NeoPixels which I’ve wanted to play with for a while now. :)
