Elovalo Effect Challenge

Elovalo Effect Challenge

The purpose of Elovalo project (elovalo.org) is to produce three pedestals with a led cube (512 leds) on top of them for Jyväskylä's City of Light event. The pedestals will be visible at a local park.

This challenge is meant to encourage programmers to participate in the project. We are mainly looking for effect related contributions. They are to be implemented in C in a somewhat limited environment . A Blender based simulator has been implemented to make it easier to visualize the algorithms.

In addition to elovalo.org, those interested should check out https://github.com/hacklab-jkl/elovalo .

The challenge deadline is fixed to 19.9 although it is appreciated that possible entries are delivered before so we have time to integrate them to the trunk. No prizes, sorry. Just fame and name in the credits.

    Project proposal at Spring Led cube thingy got through Live Herring as a sponsor Design, concepting done Assembly (3x) + fx left
  2. Technical Specifications 512 voxels (8x8x8 LEDs), double-buffered display AVR ATMega328

    @ 16MHz (2k SRAM (0.5k for you guys), 32k FLASH) Sensors: proximity (x2), ambient sound, ambient light Bidirectional UART interface RTC for scheduling
  3. Software Specifications C (yay!) + some magic Previz using Blender

    (got scripts for that) Memory (that 0.5k) an issue Procedural fx + buffer tricks ftw
  4. Challenge Accepted? Create playlists/effects Fork and send us pull requests.

    Work against the effects branch! Possible ideas and discussion Rewards: fame and no fortune (at least you get to the credits + the effect will run on the real thing for a week) Deadline: 19.9 (within two weeks)
