Above is a shot of my lightbar resting ontop of my monitor. This shot is without the LED lenses.
Going to try and nab an Arduino Pro mini during SparkFun Electronics's free sale this week. Hardware's been done for a while minus the pro mini, and I won't be able to put her up on the wall until then. It does not look like the IR receiver is going to be making it into this project, at least until I find more time.
