The Ambilight that I’ve built is completely DIY and uses RGB LEDs with integrated controllers and an Arduino. Lights will change based on what you have in your screen.
- Arduino (Nano is preferred Cost: INR 300/-, I already had the big one so Cost: INR 0/-)
- RGB LED Strip (Cost: INR 350/-)
- LED 5V Power Adapter (Cost: INR 250/-)
- Frame for setting up the LED Strip (Cost: INR 200/-)
This setup is very cheap but only works on a PC. You cannot use this for your Blu-ray player or standalone TV. This could work on an Android TV but not tested.
Below is the final working version,
And here are some pics of the completed product,
