Phantom Data Services is pleased to announce that its PhantomLink Wi-Fi Light experiment will soon be released as an open-source project. The PhantomLink Wi-Fi Light started as a simple experiment to see if the PhantomLink Wi-Fi security device could be modified for other purposes. After just a few tweaks, the device was transformed into a full color light display that can generate any number of colors and patterns, and is controlled wirelessly over a Wi-Fi connection. Multiple units can even be synchronized to music.

This wireless light display is driven by control software that runs on any Wi-Fi enabled computer. The control software is able to generate numerous effects, as well as provide a sophisticated sequencing environment that can synchronize various PhantomLink lights to a music source. These capabilities make it ideal for creating a fully customizable light show that can distributed throughout a room.

A complete set of instructions, along with a free download of the control software, will be released early next month. A sneak preview of this exciting new capability is now currently available on the PhantomLink website.
