Finally got that snow clock that's in a toot from a year ago somewhere more-or-less finished off and up on GitHub: https://github.com/LionsPhil/pixmasclock
Marvel at my (very dusty) woodgrain tape deck hiding in the background of the enthralling demo video.
Ideally I'd find some way to software-control the USB bus power, so I can kill the hub the "old" lights are connected to (it's still crazy futuretech to me they have an IR remote, which I'm holding off-camera). The hard part is probably that I'm not sure those lights have good default behaviour on power restore.
(Yes I know about RGB-addressible LEDs; programming a controller for some of those is my next lighting project. But I've got these fixed-function ones for here.)
