Philips Hue Responsive Lighting


Quick proof of concept shows light responsiveness.

I've been curious about the Philips Hue lighting system for a while, especially after discovering there was a developer API available. After learning the basic network connectivity of the system. I set out to build a quick test of the light's responsiveness by sending different colors to the light at a high rate. The result was a video player that samples a section of the video, averages the color of that screen segment, and sends the resulting value as RGB values to the light.

This example was done a while back with AS3/Adobe AIR. Next iteration would likely use Unity + C# or Javascript.
