iRacing Plugin for Prismatik

I’ve been trying to teach myself a little Python, and here’s what I came up with for my first small project. Using their respective APIs, I’ve built a plugin for the Prismatik ambilight software that maps live data from the iRacing simulator. A video demonstrates the end result far better than I can explain it: The plugin itself is open source and hosted on GitHub. Click here to download the latest version.

Improving Adalight Framerate

As cool as I think ambilights are, using Adalight with my DIY setup has one major limitation: framerate. Video technology works on a principle caused persistence of vision, which means that our brains still “see” an image briefly after it’s taken away. If you replace the images quickly enough, our brains interpolate the differences between them and we get an illusion of motion.
