R2D2 CheerLights Lamp Streaming on Twitch

I love, love getting “CheerLights” Google Alerts for people’s projects. I get an email when Google indexes a page that mentions CheerLights. I get all kinds of alerts, and this latest one caught my eye.

Duuh Duuh da da da Duuh Duuh da da da Duuh Duuh dun-dun-dun-duuuuh…

Julie Stainbrook has created an R2D2 Lamp that is live streaming on Twitch! The killer feature is that you can also control the lamp while you watch it and even set it to CheerLights mode.

Watch and control an R2D2 Lamp on Twitch

Right now on Twitch, you could watch people playing video games , but I would rather watch an R2D2 Lamp next to the Death Star (not to scale). While you are watching the lamp, press some of the controls to change the color of the lamp. Visit http://r2d2.hyperjoule.io to see the embeded Twitch stream and use the controls.

Julie has posted a full explanation of the project on her hyperjoule.io website and has all of the code available on GitHub.
