Kettle: Remote lighting and movement control through Bluetooth / wifi.
Toaster: Using fadecandy to map the spectrum of the volume as the output on LED strips. customized user interface for other shapes(happy/sad faces)
The next step was to solder them to have a stable circuit that could last the entire shooting.
