Introducing pyLegLight – A Python module for the Elgato Key Lights
February 19, 2020
At work, I’ve been spending more time on video calls with our Eastern European office. In order for it to be a reasonable time of day for the team, my calls are either very early in the morning or very late at night. To make sure that both sides get the most out of the limited time we have in the calls, I want the call quality to be the highest possible. That means a clean background, a Logitech C920S HD Pro Webcam and lighting — specifically two Elgato Key Light panels. The panels work super well, perhaps I’ll review them another time, but my first interest was how I can control these lights (which operate over wifi) in a programmatic fashion. Queue some basic reverse engineering and Python — Enter pyLegLight!
Review: Getting Started with Arduino (Book)
October 20, 2010
Since I’ve gotten onto my Arduino kick, I figured I should get some proper reading material on the subject. One of the first I saw was Getting Started with Arduino by Make: Magazine. Since “Getting Started” is exactly what I wanted and I rather like most of what Make does, I bought and read the book.
