Christmas star light

We’ve got some Christmas stars in the window that needed some illumination. I hacked together a Olimex OLIMEXINO-85, a 8 mm RGB led, and the support components to make this:


The video is a one-frame-per-second timelapse (thanks Android!). It’s hard to see as the LED is so bright that the camera is saturating but it’s 60 s on white, 10 s transition to the next colour, 10 s there, then 10 s transition back to white. The colour cycles around the colour wheel, although the purple and cyan are a bit subtle.
