Purpose of the project is to create a device that shows status of the last build performed on continuous integration server. This sort of devices is called “extreme feedback device” and while many such devices can be found on the web (lava lamps, lights with batman-sign, ambient orbs, water fountains,…) they all seemed to be complicated or expensive.
another extreme feedback devices:
Device is connected to the PC that periodically runs powershell script. Script gets build results from Jenkins CI via REST API and sends signal to the arduino.
Note: I tried LEDs with higner luminous intensity (100000 mcd) and narrower viewing angle (15°) but overall result is better with weaker LEDs (400 mcd) that have wider viewing angle (150°).
