Rainbows for Pride 2015
I coded up a small animation that makes ever-shifting rainbows, for Pride 2015. Short sample video is below, code is here https://gist.github.com/kriegsman/964de772d64c502760e5 I took these animations to a couple of events this weekend, and people seemed to like them. (A couple of people were surprised that I’d code up “just rainbows”, but for Pride how could I not?) The short video doesn’t show how much the animation varies and shifts over time, but it has a pretty wide range of effects, all rainbow-y.
This code itself is not particularly commented this time; it’s meant to be more of a plug-and-play animation, though of course you’re welcome to run it and tinker with the parameters and see what you get – that’s what I did!
The simple one-function animation structure is compatible with the DemoReel100 style of cycling through multiple animations, and you should be able to cut and paste the ‘pride’ function into other sketches relatively easily.
Requires FastLED 3.1 from the github.branch of the same name.
