    Cool project. I like the look of tablet interface.

    The GitHub does not include the ws2801 code required for control. I’ve been working with similar strips from AdaFruit – 2 versions, each with own controller.

    Comments on Hack-a-day posts claim there are cheaper strips direct from china – but you may not get the same controller chips, and will not get usable documentation. AdaFruit talks a bit about difficulties reverse engineering the control protocol.

    Thanks. I found software dependencies in comments at top of StripInvaders.ino. Perhaps you could add these to the readme/github description so people can get them all at the same time. I often download then go offline to read & digest. Getting all at same time gives a bigger feast.

    Have you seen the new adafruit demo for their PWM’d addressable wire? Some neat code tricks.

    I really like your tablet interface. Gives me great ideas for my own LED Strip installations. Thanks.

    What OSC controller are you using? Is there a control application/configuration you recommend?

    Great implementation, what would the effort be to map the LPD 6803 chipset library ?
    Is this doable ?
    Thanks,

    Hi,
    Great job with this!
    I have it all set up & have tested using serial. Im wanting to control using android. I downloaded android control as suggested, but have no idea how to configure it, do you have any pointers?

    TouchOSC doesn’t allow custom GUI so I used the apl Control for Android (search for OSC)

    Awesome project. I’m new to arduino, I’ve been given an arduino uno, could I simply add a arduino Ethernet shield to get the same result? Cheers for a new project for me to get stuck into!

    Stripinvaders looks really good! I am trying to get the Arduino to compile using https://github.com/neophob/StripInvaders/blob/master/StripInvaders.ino
    I got the libraries listed in the header. But I get compile errors. My errors are:
    tripInvader.ino: In function ‘void setup()’:
    StripInvader:171: error: ‘checkEepromSignature’ was not declared in this scope
    StripInvader:175: error: ‘EEPROMReadInt’ was not declared in this scope
    < ..>
    StripInvader:378: error: ‘setupXor’ was not declared in this scope
    Can you advise?

    michu,
    I have the sketch loaded properly & can ping invader.local. (Uno w/ Seeed Shield) But I don’t see how to use/run the gui config tool…Also, is pure data required? Thanks:)

    Do you think, it would be easily possible using an Arduino Yún board instead of Arduino Ethernet? It supports Wifi (which I would prefer) additionally to ethernet and also has an USB port, which is missing on the Arduino Ethernet. I’m aware, that the control of the ethernet port has to be changed by using the bridge library instead of the ethernet library. But I have no experiences with Arduino until now and can’t estimate, whether this is a simple or complex task. Maybe the size of the sketch will be a problem, because the other library is bigger (only an assumption) and the boot loader of the Yún needs 4 kB instead of 0.5 kB.
