Many a lonely night has been spent during this trying year, we want to bring people together, no matter the distance between them.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.”
What it does
A revolutionary real time synchronous LED system built on state of the art hardware (although we could use a new arduino). Just click the button and your friend will know you're thinking about them. We use a low level network api to ensure minimal latency so you feel like your friend is in your room, shining a light on you :)
How we built it
Wires + electricity + python + voodoo magic (wifi)
Challenges we ran into
Pressing Q still doesn't quit the server :/
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Coming up with a truly unique and innovative idea and executing it flawlessly.
What we learned
How sockets work. How to use a breadboard. How to change people's lives.
What's next for Light Together
The future is bright for the project (oo baby another pun). As of tomorrow we'll be 5 investor calls deep, my mum is pretty interested ¯_(ツ)_/¯
