This Verktøykassen will be about LED lights and Arduino. Connecting one LED light to an Arduino is not very difficult, but what if you want to connect to 50 lights or LED strips? We will look at what type of Arduino accessories, how much power is needed and how to connect everything to make this happen.

About Verktøykassen

Verktøykassen (the toolbox) is BEK’s new meeting place to learn about and try out technical tools, be it both hardware and software. There is a low threshold for participation and a high hands-on factor. Each time, a new “theme of the day” is launched, and the participants can come with inputs or questions that are raised jointly. The toolbox will take place regularly throughout the spring, and is led by game developer and programmer Stian Remvik.
