Black Ghost Paints With Light!

20. January 2013 by Curtis Perrin 1 comment

The gBikes crew added a new feature to the Black Ghost the other night. We had bought a strand of addressable LEDs a while back. These easily ALEDs are easily controlled from our Rasperry Pi mini Linux computer. One of the cool things you can do with them is light painting where by using long exposure photography you can reveal an image that is displayed one column of pixels at a time. We used these instructions on light painting with the raspberry pi and got some pretty awesome results. We’re looking at making this into a interactive type setup via a simple wifi drawing app. See below for a video of the photo session as it happened. Special thanks to Kiki Falconer for the opening animation and you also might recognize the music by Ben Abraham from our very first bike car video. Bryant Deroy photo, Mike Rogers video.

    This is great. Raspberry Pi… what peripherals? Also, what language did you use?
