This summer seems to be an excellent opportunity for home repair and improvement. If you're looking for something fun and colorful to spruce up your home, check out this awesome Raspberry Pi-powered LED staircase project by Reddit user chocolate_dingy.
The project concept is simple enough, it uses a motion sensor to detect when someone is walking on the stairs. There are LED strips corresponding with each step. The Pi will send a signal to light up each step depending on the location data received from the sensor.
According to the creator, the whole setup relies on a single sonar sensor. This is used to measure distance while ascending the steps. The sensor information is relayed to the Pi so it can process the location information.
