The Arduino-powered "Liquid Lifebar" project

 In what is a fantastic example of someone's first Arduino project, gaming enthusiast "bfayer" has created the Liquid Lifebar. This is a tube which contains a varying amount of fluid with an additive that helps illuminate the water under various lighting conditions. The colour light refracted through the liquid is from RGB LEDs, and the fluid level and colour is controlled by a application on a connected PC. This takes game player data such as life levels and uses the Liquid Lifebar to display these in a more physical manner. Sit back and check out the construction and demonstration in the following video:

The details are being published slowly over time, however the Arduino sketch can be found here. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

When adding your own circuitry for an Arduino-based project such as the amazing Liquid Lifebar above, you'll need a protoshield to mount the external circuitry. In doing so, consider our range of ProtoShields. From the tiny LeoStick to the Mega range, we offer a complete range for you to work with.
