WIZpix: Internet-Connected Pixel Controller
Robert Gasiorowski (United States)
The WIZpix pixel controller uses a WIZnet W5500 to connect to the Internet and an MCU to interface with a W5500 and drive intelligent pixels. Main goal for this project was to create smart Christmas lights. However, CPC can be used anywhere animated lights are required, such as for parties, displays, shows, home decor, and more. It eliminates the need for expensive and complex DMX system. Thanks to built-in power over Ethernet (PoE), only one cable is required.
