A little Android automation turns SPOKA to SPOOKTACULAR!

Dan over on has completed an amazing bit of IKEA Hacking.  He built a custom bluetooth interface inside an IKEA SPOKA light and then wrote an android app that lets him control the colors of the SPOKA remotely from his android phone.

Just imagine having several of them around a room all color changing in sync either manually or controlled by an automated bit of software on the phone that syncs it to music etc?  Very cool indeed.  Dan posted the video above as well as providing a VERY in depth article complete with schematics, code etc that show exactly how he did it. Our hat is officially doffed to you Dan – amazing work!

    Yay! I have 3 spokas. The two new ones, and the old blue one. Wish I’d managed to snag the old pink and green ones too (even if they didn’t change color…)
