P-COMP: LOL Shield IR library. 12/02/11
This is a clever way for optimizing the amount of animations a lol shield can exhibit, by making some of the led points switches.
This project was created using the LOL Shield by Jimmie Rodgers and the IR library by Ken Shirriff. The LOL library and the IR library do not work together because the ISR code in both is using the same timer. I tried combining both libraries and make one of the ISR a separate function and injected into the other, however; it failed, so I had to alter the example code of the LOL Shield without the library and the help of Shawn Lauriat. Using the mac remote, I was able to move a dot around the screen. Then if user finds the right dot an animation will appear, coded in with the help of Jimmie Rodgers’s excel sheet. The play button flashes all the LEDs at once and the menu button resets your dot position. Even though its aesthetic was like a cute TV or a Bomb, I changed it to match the Mac remote and painted it white. I also added 3 other animations, CNN, a porn channel, the previous Discovery, and an alien channel. I failed to find the alien channel myself falling as a victim of my own architecture!
