Solar powered pixelblaze

I happened to have those panels laying around, so I thought, why not…

It actually works! Hilarious!

That was with the wifi module still running on the pixelblaze, it became even funnier when I turned that off! I didn’t expect it to work so well as is!

Ideas based on this…

  1. Plug in a power bank between the solar panels and the pixelblaze, and set the pixelblaze to only turn on at sundown and off at sunup via the smart timing feature in the setting menu.

  2. Use mirrors and optical fibers to focus more surrounding lights indoor onto the solar panels to turn on the pixelblaze. WIRELESS ENERGY!
