How to use Raspberry Pi to build Christmas lights from strange things


I am a big fan of the Stranger Things series and I can’t wait for the next season. If you haven’t watched this show, in Season 1, two characters use Christmas lights to communicate in different dimensions, with letters written under the lights.

I made a copy a year ago, but with the upcoming release of season 4, it’s time to make a bigger and better version. These lights can be hung on your wall, allowing friends, family and even strangers to communicate with you.

What do you need for this project

  • Raspberry Pi 4 or Raspberry Pi 3
  • USB power adapter for Raspberry Pi
  • 8 GB (or larger) microSD card with Raspberry Pi OS.View our list The best microSD card For the Raspberry Pi.
  • Two strands of 12v WS2811 LED (One thread will work, but two threads look more suitable for letter spacing)
  • A 12 volt power supply (Any standard 12v power supply can work)
  • Jumper cable
  • Wire stripper
  • Solder or wire nut
  • A black and white printer and paper
  • scissors
  • Press pin
