This is a home-grown ambient lighting setup for XBMC running on a Raspberry PI.
It is kind of like the phillips ambilight tv sets but looks a lot more intense.
Not for everyone, but pretty cool nonetheless.
For years I had a Philis TV with ambialight. When I got it I figured I would just off. Seemed like a gimmick to me. However, it was awesome. Once I tried watching a movie without it and hated it. I use a projector now do its not necessary, but when I do my office this summary and put in a flat screen,I will be adding bias lighting
That looks awesome.... I would love to do that in my HT and would venture to try it even though it's a projector and screen. Only reason I won't is because it's a screen on a false wall. If ti were a screen on a solid wall I think I would go for it, I really love the lighting effects it gives off.
