AntiKippenLights was built in advance of the 21C3 by Stefan Schürmans as a successor of KippenLights.

AntiKippenLights (also known as KippenLightsSpezial) contains a PIC Microcontroller which can control all the LEDs seperately and thus play several animations (some of which with greyscales!) on the AntiKippenLights. The order of the animations is determined by the electromagnetic pollution the antenna receives and thus is quite random.



Note: please use low current LEDs!
