RGB-Transmitter

RGB-Transmitter


By changing the lighting conditions per channel (R, G, B) in the input device, you create your own color output in a purely gestural way. Create colors according to the RGB model physically, faithfully and in real time.

The implementation was carried out by means of 2 Arduino MKR1000, which communicate over the network. Each lightsensor (R, G, B) is mapped directly to the associated LED (R, G, B). Since the light sensors have a high photosensitivity, even fine color gradations are reproducible.
The microcontroller in the input-device continuously forwards the three data from the three light sensors to the microcontroller in the output-device via the network. For a correct reproduction of the RGB color space, the transmitted data is converted in advance into an RGB-capable numerical value system, thus passing on the individual LED.
