Movie Mood Light

at 7:09 am. Filed under Cool Gadgets, DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks


Similar to the cool new Ambilight technology by Philips. The MoMoLight which stands for Movie Mood Light displays colors on the wall behind the screen in relation to what is being displayed on the screen.

“MoMoLight stands for Movie Mood Light.
It”s my PC version of the Philips Ambilight system.
Three sets of lights are placed behind a computer screen ( left, top and right) and display the average colour of their corresponding part of the screen. This makes the screen look bigger and spices up the movie experience. (check out the Philips website for more info on Ambilight).

How does it work ?
MoMoLight consists of 5 parts:
– a directshow filter which calculates the average values and sends them to the hardware
via the serial port.
– The “Brain” a piece of hardware containing a microcontroller to take care of the PWM
(Pulse Width Modulation)
– The “Power” a piece of hardware that drives the lights, that usually require more power
than a usb port can handle
– the actual lights : these can be leds, CCFLs, ledstrips, …
– a power supply capable of powering everything”

  1. Mood Lights Says:

    Mood Light is the innovative medium which allows you to control your own light scenarios. With the remote control you can change colours, functions and light sequences. According to your mood you can create in different colour intensities: a stimulating red, a calming blue, an enforcing orange or a relaxing green. By changing the intensity of the primary colours red, green and blue you can blend unlimited colour combinations.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
