There's more documentation on the Fadecandy project available in its GitHub repository:
- Processing OPC client
- Server configuration
- Open Pixel Control protocol
- WebSocket protocol
- Try more examples.
- Modify examples designed for other LED configurations so they work with yours.
- Design interesting shapes and find new materials for the light to interact with.
- Try using more lights. One Fadecandy board can control up to 512 pixels, and you can connect many Fadecandy boards to one computer using USB hubs.
- Make your art portable with a Raspberry Pi or other single-board computer.
- And of course, writing more visual effects.
What about pixel mapping? It works for some kinds of art, but other kinds of art may be easier with a 3-dimensional mapping or something custom. Work is in progress to make more kinds of LED mappings easy, and to support automatic mapping using computer vision.
