Project: Flickering Flame Lighting Effects with Arduino for Halloween and more!

Halloween is rapidly approaching, so I went looking for Halloween specific projects I could make and share with my fellow makers at Hackerspace LA.

Here are a couple of links, and a video, for creating realistic flickering flame effects using a few LEDS and an Arduino micro controller. I am thinking of putting together a couple of these for our jack-o-lanterns this year.

Flickering led

In this project we will use 3 LED's and an Arduino to create a realistic fire effect that could be used in a diorama, model railway or a fake fireplace in your home or put one inside a frosted glass jar or tube and no-one would know it wasn't a real candle inside. This is a really simple project suited to beginners.

Here’s a video, too.
