Spectrum Visualizer Demo

Here's a video showing the spectrum visualizer in action

The visualizer code is still being tweaked a bit to make it look nicer, but this video shows its basic operation as well as some more scrolling text just for fun

Scrolling code solved

The words are now scrolling the whole visor.

Sample of an extra animation that will be added to final product.  Behold, blinking eyes.

Some more tests. The paper wont be there in the end, it just makes it easier to see for now. We will be hopefully putting some tint in front of the lights.

Some updates on the circuit board, just about every component has been soldered on and there are only a few resistors and capacitors are left for the spectrum analyzer circuit. Progress pictures below. The last pictures shows how the circuit board and the Arduino will come together.





A Few updates on the Visor. All of the LED's have been soldered in and wired. Two of the ribbon cables have also been soldered on for the first 10x8 block of LED's. Progress Pictures below.

The circuit board we designed has arrived. To the left is back of the board and the front of the board  is on the right. 


Painting of the LED's is finished, we have also started soldering it together. 

We have finished building the ear lights. Don't you worry though they will be covered so you wont be able to see the wires and resistors. (Below)
